Hevesi, Mulrow and Wolfson

Although former comptroller candidate Bill Mulrow has been mentioned as a possible replacement for Alan Hevesi, he’s not ready to talk about it just yet — at least not without the help of an expert.

Mulrow had a reputation for being refreshingly accessible to reporters when he last ran for office. But when I called his office at Coastal Development to find out what he thought of the latest news of the Albany DA’s expanding investigation into the expenditures by Hevesi and his staff, I was referred to Howard Wolfson.

“He’s not going to have a comment on that,” Wolfson told me, also noting that Mulrow hasn’t done anything to fan the speculation about succeeding Hevesi.

Wolfson said that he is a spokesman for the company and is friends with Mulrow.
