Sources: Diaz Leaving Paterson for County Clerk Job

Two knowledgeable sources in Albany have said Luis Diaz, the community affairs director for Governor David Paterson, is informing colleagues today is his last day on the job and that he’s leaving to accept the position of Bronx County Clerk.

Liz had a good jump on this story yesterday.

Diaz is not considered the candidate favored by the new Bronx Democratic County Leader, Carl Heastie, but then, the person decides how to fill the vacancy is Judge Luis Gonzalez. Sources: Diaz Leaving Paterson for County Clerk Job
