YONKERS - The former right-hand man of ex-Gov. George Pataki has announced he will run for state attorney general against Democratic incumbent Eric Schneiderman.

John Cahill announced his run on Mother's Day, in part to pay tribute to his late mother, an Irish immigrant.

The Yonkers resident, who now runs an energy consulting firm with Pataki, spoke in favor of education legislation like the New York Dream Act, and touts his work preserving the
environment.  

"Whether it's the wolves of Wall Street or big government on State Street, no one seems to be interested in the concerns of regular New Yorkers," he says.

While Pataki did not attend the event, organizers say he will be involved in the campaign.
