Suffolk: Zwirn's move to SCCC put off
Suffolk Executive Steve Bellone's aide Ben Zwirn was getting ready to exit the administration last week to join Suffolk Community College as coordinator of intergovernmental affairs.
But at the last minute Zwirn’s move was emporarily squelched when the county executive intervened with college president Shaun MacKay, asking to keep Zwirn on board through the fall for what is a expected to be a difficult budget process.
Zwirn declined comment, but sources say that the school has agreed to hold the job open until Zwirn becomes available.
