Typed veto message signed as Governor of New York in 1930
Typed Document signed: "Franklin D. Roosevelt" as Governor, 1 page, 7¾x11. Albany, N.Y., 1930 April 14. Document on State of New York Executive Chamber letterhead, titled "Memorandum filed with Assembly Bill Introductory 1889, Printed Number 2150 entitled 'AN ACT in relation to the supervision and maintenance of Proctor Avenue in the city of Ogdensburg.'" Veto message in full: "NOT APPROVED "This bill compels the State to take care of a city street because the State owns property abutting thereon. This would be an exceedingly inadvisable precedent to establish because, if the principle of this bill were correct, the State would have to maintain streets in all cities in which it owned a hospital. For that reason, the bill is disapproved." Formerly a state legislator, Assistant Secretary of the Navy in the Wilson Administration (1913-1920), the Democratic Party's Vice Presidential nominee in 1920, and a private lawyer and businessman for most of the 1920s, Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected Governor of New York in 1928 and re-elected in 1930, resigning the office upon his election as the 32nd President of the United States in 1932. Roosevelt became the longest serving US President (1933-1945), and the first to be re-elected a third and then a fourth time. Remembered for his New Deal economic policies and as leader of the victorious coalition in World War II, FDR was ranked in a poll of over 700 historians as the third greatest US President, trailing only Washington and Lincoln. Four years as Governor of what was then the nation's most populous state provided Roosevelt with executive experience and credibility. Vertical creases through "F", "D", and "R" of signature. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
