Nassau comptroller hires GOP ticket-mate

Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos made it official Wednesday: he’s appointed his GOP ticket mate, Joy Watson, as his $130,000-a-year deputy comptroller of audits and special projects.

It’s a short move across the street from where Watson now works, in the Mineola courthouse where she is a principal law clerk.

Watson, a Hempstead resident and a former assistant district attorney in Nassau, ran against incumbent DA Kathleen Rice last year.

Watson replaces Aline Khatchadourian, who will be moving to the staff of County Executive Edward Mangano, the comptroller said.
