Suffolk's Calcaterra moves on to state housing division

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone’s former chief deputy, Regina Calcaterra, is moving to a new job in state government, as chief operating officer for the Division of Housing and Community Renewal, serving under the commissioner.

Calcaterra left county government late last year, to become executive director of the governor’s Moreland Commission on Utility Preparation and Response.

The hard-driving Calcaterra ruffled feathers while working for the county, after arriving on the local political scene three years ago in a bid to challenge State Sen. Kenneth LaValle (R-Port Jefferson), only to have her candidacy invalidated in a court ruling involving her residency.
