Another person from the old guard is exiting the Buffalo Comptroller's Office.
Patrick J. Curry, a longtime executive assistant to the comptroller, resigned Tuesday – his last day on the job after almost seven and a half years – to pursue other job opportunities.
Curry, 38, served as spokesman for former Comptroller Mark J.F. Schroeder until January, when Schroeder resigned to head the state's Department of Motor Vehicles.
Before that, Curry served as chief of staff when Schroeder served in the Assembly and as Schroeder's communications director when Schroeder served in the Erie County Legislature.
"It was an honor and privilege to serve the people of Buffalo," said Curry, who had applied for the interim comptroller position, to which former Erie County Legislator Barbara Miller-Williams was named last month.
Miller-Williams terminated Vanessa A. Glushefski as deputy comptroller weeks ago.
Days before, Glushefski withdrew from the comptroller's race for the June 25 primary.
