City Makes City Attorney Position Fulltime

The City Council has voted unanimously to make the City Attorney’s position full-time.

I think very highly of Vince DeLeonardis who has been holding this position part-time and will now be working full-time for the city.  Mr. DeLeonardis is a partner in a law firm in Albany.  He takes some risk leaving that position to work full-time for the city.  While he works for the entire Council, he serves at the pleasure of the Mayor and a change in administration could always put him at risk.  Having dealt with him on a number of occasions it is apparent that he thoroughly enjoys the kind of law involved in working for the city.

I credit  Mayor Kelly for taking the initiative to bring about this change.  I must say it is rather refreshing to have a Mayor who obviously enjoys making things happen rather than, like most politicians, focusing on photo opportunities and seeking the adulation of the public for what they do.
