Ex-accountant's history garners regional attention
From The Register-Star
Francesca Olsen connects the dots in an excellent story in The Register-Star about how fired Copake accountant Brian Fitzgerald also worked in Cairo, Germantown, and Clermont. Olsen references a YouTube video from last year (see below) with this caption: "Councilwoman Carol Lent drives the town accountant out of the room while the world watches. She is up for re-election in 2009." Lent tells The Register-Star that Fitzgerald's work is being looked at by the comptroller's office. In Cairo, the comptroller's office already has released a report about Fitzgerald's lax work and the lack of oversight from Town of Cairo officials. The comptroller's report says, “There has been a general lack of financial oversight by both the Board and the Supervisor.... Town officials and the general public have not been able to adequately monitor the town’s fiscal affairs, and the financial condition of the water, sewer, hydrant and lighting district funds has decreased significantly.”


Maloney's out
From Capitol Confidential
U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney said Friday she won’t take on U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand next year in a Democratic primary, opting to stay in the House of Representatives, where she has served for nine terms. Jonathan Tasini continues to challenge Gillibrand for the seat, but is not expected to raise the money or win the media coverage that Maloney would have.
