Nassau comptroller to fill two high-level vacancies

North Hempstead Republican leader Frank Moroney began working last week as the $160,000-a-year communications director for the GOP majority in the Nassau County legislature, leaving his $167,000-a-year position as Nassau Comptroller George Maragos’ chief deputy.

Joy Watson, another Maragos deputy, also left the comptroller’s office after the legislature voted along party lines last Monday to appoint her to the district court bench in Hempstead.

Maragos intends to fill both vacancies and is the process of interviewing applicants, a spokesman said.
