Patton joins others in show of faith in flying

Governors will travel to N.Y. and Washington

The Associated Press

        FRANKFORT — Gov. Paul Patton and several of his fellow governors are flying to New York and Washington, D.C., to promote air travel and tourism.

        “I think it's important to support these cities and the airline industry — both victims of this horrible act,” Mr. Patton said Friday, referring to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center and part of the Pentagon.

        Mr. Patton and first lady Judi Patton are to fly tonight from Lexington to Baltimore/Washington International Airport.

        Sunday, they are to take an American Airlines flight into New York, joining New York Gov. George Pataki.

        Other governors in the group are Republicans Don Sundquist of Tennessee and Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Democrats Parris Glendening of Maryland, Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire and Ronnie Musgrove of Mississippi.

        Washington, D.C., Mayor Tony Williams also is to be in the group.

        In New York, the group plans to have lunch at a deli, visit a memorial to victims of the attacks, shop at Macy's and attend a Broadway show. Monday, they are to appear on NBC's Today show before flying to Washington, according to Mr. Patton's staff.

        “We're hoping that our time in New York City will reinforce to everyone that it's still the entertainment capital of the world and that the best way to honor its victims is to visit the city and patronize its ... attractions,” Mr. Patton said.
