State Staffing Change

Michael Fragin just sent out an e-mail informing colleagues that Wednesday will be his last day working in the Governor’s office, as he is taking a job as the Vice President of Strategic Planning at the Battery Park Authority. Mr. Fragin confirmed the move and emphasized that he is “still part of the Pataki orbit.” He also said that the move has nothing to do with the demonstrations in Borough Park or Jonathan Greenspun’s moving on as liaison to the Jewish community for the Bloomberg administration.
