From the NY Post:
The Kelly Dynasty will continue at the NYPD if Christine Quinn gets elected mayor, The Post has learned.
The police commissioner and council speaker have cut a private deal that will keep him as top cop for a fourth consecutive mayoral term with a Quinn victory in the November race to succeed Mike Bloomberg, sources said.
Confidants in both camps confirmed the secret pact — which will bolster Quinn’s anti-crime credentials while allowing Ray Kelly, 71, to keep the powerful post he loves.
“Ray is going to stay on if it’s Quinn,” said a source close to Kelly, adding that the commissioner decided months ago that he would agree to keep his job if the next mayor asks him.
A source close to Quinn said, “She has made her intentions clear” that she will retain Kelly if elected mayor.
Their deal does not specify how long Kelly would keep the job, the sources said.
