HUGH L. CAREY INSTITUTE

FOR GOVERNMENT REFORM

 

‘I am a New Yorker by birth, education and inclination. I know how strong we are as a people. I know that together, we are strong enough to do what must be done in the name of common decency. And I am determined, by the deepest teachings of my faith, to hear the cries of distress from the least among us — to redress those wrongs which challenge our claim of caring.’

Gov. Hugh L. Carey,
from his 1975 inaugural address
