Cuomo Loses a Katz

Cuomo spokesperson Wendy Katz is leaving.

She cast a notably watchful eye over the coverage of the attorney general campaign last year and continued to handle press during Andrew Cuomo’s inauguration and first weeks in office.

Katz confirmed her departure when reached by cell phone just now. And in keeping with form, she had a prepared statement from her former boss:

“Wendy has been an outstanding member of my team, helping to carry us through to victory and a smooth transition. We will miss her leadership, counsel, and expertise as she takes on her next challenge.”
