Jan 12, 2009 — Coming off his first State of the State address, Governor David Paterson is taking his prescription for the state's $15.4-billion deficit on the road. The first stop on his Upstate tour was last night at the North Side Improvement League in Watertown. His message to the packed house of 400 people was as grim as it was simple: 2009 will be "the year of bad medicine" for New York State. Paterson offered little new from previous speeches. But as David Sommerstein reports, his frankness appeared to win the crowd.
