“The biggest challenge that our new governor will have is how he handles this and how the legislature hands this,” Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion told me just now about the Alan Hevesi situation.
“If you imagine that a comptroller has to go into a school board, or a town or a village or a hamlet in this state and question whether or not they’re spending their money correctly, it presents a serious challenge for this comptroller.”
You can listen to the really brief Carrion interview over here.
The conspiratorial back story here is that Carrion is an all-but-declared
2008 2009 mayoral candidate, and he could benefit if another likely candidate in that race, Comptroller Bill Thompson, replaces Hevesi.
But then maybe that’s reading too much into it.
