Queens City Councilman Mark Weprin is resigning the seat he’s held since 2010 to take a job with Gov. Cuomo, the Daily News has learned.
Weprin will be paid about $150,000 a year to serve as Cuomo’s deputy secretary of legislative affairs, which will make him the administration’s conduit to the Legislature, City Council and possibly federal officials.
Weprin was well liked during his 15 years serving as a Democrat in the state Assembly, and his hiring is a signal that Cuomo is looking to improve his frayed relationship with the state Legislature.
The ink isn't even dry on the resignation letter, and the pigs have already lined up at the trough. Odds are county will go with Grodenchik.
