Cunningham, a Paterson Adviser, Departs

David Paterson’s adviser Bill Cunningham is leaving his job.
Cunningham sent an email at 9:46 a.m. to friends, and it was forwarded to me by a reader.
Cunningham, whose roots are on Long Island, served as the governor’s secretary, but then left in February.
It was immediately reported that Cunningham rejoined the state payroll as an “adviser.”
Today’s departure sounds more permanent. Here’s the email:
