"But in a secure area used by the state police, one test result was positive indicating the possibility, the likelihood that anthrax is present. As a result of this we have closed our state offices, the 38 and 39th floor, where my office is located, approximately 75 to 80 people work there. They're going to be cleaned, we'll begin right now, and we're hopeful that by Monday they'll be cleaned and we'll be back in the office."

"In this case we found the presence of anthrax. But we also have had no positive indication of anyone testing positive for it. We're going to clean up the site, it will be back up and functioning in a couple of days, for now we're using temporary space. It's important that people be aware, but they not be blown up to the point where the efforts of these terrorists to frighten us to the point were we don't go about our daily lives succeed. We can't let that happen. We have to win, and by winning we have to show the confidence and the ability to go about our normal lives that we as Americans are entitled to show."

"It's a different type of war and it requires a different type of response. And part of that response has to be confidence, belief in our country, belief in our security, belief in our way of life, and an unwillingness to let these evil people win. We're on not going to do that. You know our offices are open today and functioning. We had to find temporary space. My secretary is working today, notwithstanding the fact she was ill and was tested and obviously and a great deal of pressure. But that's the spirit, that's the unity of New Yorkers that's not going to let them win but to make our state and our country a better place to live in and that's what we have to do."
