New York Gov. David Paterson yesterday nominated a new chairman to the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York, the second largest issuer of bonds in the country. Paterson picked Alfonso L. Carney Jr. to replace Gail Gordon, who has served as chairwoman for 11 of the 14 years she’s been on the board.
“I want to thank Ms. Gordon for her 14 years of service as a board member of the Dormitory Authority, including her nearly 11 years as chair,” Paterson said in a press release. “She has led the authority with great commitment and distinction and I wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavors. I am confident that Alfonso Carney will continue the tradition of sound leadership.”
