Incoming New York City Comptroller John Liu is keeping deputy comptroller for public finance Carol Kostik in her current job of working with the mayor’s budget office to put together the city’s bond deals.

“[Liu] wants to balance continuity with new ideas and we expect to hit the ground running,” Kostik said.

Though the position was advertised last month, Liu’s staff announced last week that Kostik would remain in the job she’s held since being appointed by former Comptroller William Thompson in 2006.

Kostik had previously served as chief financial officer at the New York City Housing Development Corp., CFO for the Nassau County Interim Finance Authority, and as a vice president at Merrill Lynch & Co.
