Meet the Council's New Finance Director
As The Politicker reminded us today, Quinn had a massive urge to purge. And in the depths of her purge was Larian Angelo, the Council's Miller-time Finance Director.
We've gotta say, our hopes were riding high for all of the last few hours. We thought maybe, just maybe, Quinn would bring some real life into the Finance position - which indeed, has suffered tremendously over the years. We thought maybe Quinn would try to recruit some stars from the private sector to match Bloomberg's financial savvy.
But unfortunately, it appears that this will not be the case. Sources say Quinn has tapped - of all people - Queens boy Michael Keogh, husband of Clinton New York State trooper, Karen Persichilli (also of Council fame) to lead Finance. Not too long ago, Keogh served as the General Counsel to the New York City Districting Commission.
It's official, boys and girls, Quinn's hack attack continues!
