A Pataki Holdover?

Here’s one thing that doesn’t seem to have changed in Albany after Day 1:

George Pataki’s liaison to the Jewish Community, Karen Paikin, was, as of late yesterday, still answering her phone at the governor’s Manhattan office.

When she was hired by Pataki, her title was special assistant for community affairs, according to this article.

When I asked her if she was staying on in the new administration, she referred the call to an aide, who said one of the governor’s spokespeople would call me back. Then… nothing.
