The NY Times CityRoom reports that our Brooklyn Heights resident and our former man in the NYC Council, David Yassky, could be the city’s next Taxi and Limousine commish:
NY Times CityRoom: Mr. Yassky, the former head of the Council’s Transportation Committee and a political ally of the Bloomberg administration, would replace Matthew W. Daus. Best known for introducing credit-card payments systems into cabs, Mr. Daus will leave the post to work in private business, Mr. Bloomberg said on Friday.
Mr. Yassky’s appointment is not guaranteed. Mr. Bloomberg is considering several candidates, but two people described the former councilman as the leading candidate for the job. They spoke on the condition of anonymity, because the discussions are considered confidential.
