Leecia Eve appointed to post in Cuomo administration

January 19, 2011

Gov. Andrew Cuomo appointed Leecia Eve, daughter of  former Assemblyman Arthur O. Eve as a senior vice president and counsel to the Empire State Corporation. And Capitol Tonight reporter Elizabeth Benjamin writes “Cuomo has been particularly sensitive to issues of race ever since his disastrous 2002 primary against then-state Comptroller H. Carl McCall, New York’s first black major party gubernatorial candidate. He also took heat from black and Latino leaders during the 2010 campaign due to the lack of diversity on the statewide Democratic ticket.”
