Facing rumors that new Nassau comptroller George Maragos was continuing to work at the financial services firm he founded, spokesman Jostyn Hernandez reached out to reporters today to firmly deny the gossip.
"He resigned from his position," Hernandez said of his new boss, who had been chief executive of SDS Financial Technologies in Manhattan. Hernandez said Maragos, a Republican who started work Jan. 4, also had filed all paperwork required by the county ethics commission.
"He's been in the office from Day One from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day," Hernandez said. "He's the first guy in and the last guy out for the past two weeks."
