    One of the finest and most prominent politicians ever produced by New York has passed away. He made heroic efforts to save a financially strapped New York state as governor and succeeded. He was a pragmatic and tough politician..always up for the challenge.

    A life well lived in the service of the people.

    My fondest memory of Hugh Carey is watching him explain how New York was not dead. He was a strong and confident politician. He spoke clearly and with quiet resolution. This was a guy for the heavy lifting..
