Capital New York:
Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito laid off ten City Council holdovers today, her office confirmed to Capital.
The layoffs come as Mark-Viverito is on vacation in Puerto Rico.
Three council sources said among those being let go are Philip Monaco, a deputy chief of staff who earned $156,832 according to council records, and Scott Crowley, who earned $132,444.
Crowley works in the council's finance division.
Crowley is close to the Queens Democratic party, which backed Dan Garodnick over Mark-Viverito in the speaker's race.
