River politics

Among the people waiting on Pier 26 July 15 to greet Gov. Pataki as well as the 30 or so kayakers who had journeyed from Albany was David Hupert, a Tribeca resident and member of the Downtown Boathouse. Hupert recalled Pataki and his wife, Libby, kayaked with him in last year’s Great Hudson River Paddle.

“Pataki is a very strong kayaker,” Hupert said. He said New York’s first couple made quite a strong impression – almost good enough to convince Hupert to abandon his political allegiances. “If they weren’t Republicans I’d vote for them.”
