City Clerk Day

Nothing much is happening in the City Council today other than three-borough fight over who gets the city clerk’s job, one of the premier patronage gigs wholly controlled by this body.
Right now, Vito Lopez of Brooklyn wants it. Carl Heastie of the Bronx wants it too. Quinn may end up giving it to an ally of Joe Crowley from Queens. Liz has the history of the which borough s laid claim to the job. I heard Doug Muzzio of Baruch College explaining it to students outside the gates of City Hall as I was walking in. One reporter I spoke to at the front doors of City Hall said nothing has been happening here all day because of the unresolved clerk issue.
