NEW YORK (AP) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is naming two more senior staff members.
Stacey Cumberbatch will be the commissioner of Citywide Administrative Services. The department manages city-owned property and hires city employees.
Cumberbatch helped clean up the CityTime record-keeping system, which suffered from delays and ballooning budgets.
Jon Paul Lupo will direct the city's Office of City Legislative Affairs.
Lupo worked for ex-Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.
He previously was a senior staffer on the campaigns of Democratic U.S. Sens. Jim Webb of Virginia and Tim Johnson of South Dakota.
Lupo also helped steer Melissa Mark-Viverito's successful bid to become city council speaker earlier this month.
The appointment underscores the close ties between de Blasio and Mark-Viverito, who possesses power to green-light his agenda.
