Goldsmith Goes
August 4th, 2011

Stephen Goldsmith, the former mayor of Indianapolis who by many accounts has had a rough ride as deputy mayor for operations in the Big Apple, has resigned after 14 months to pursue private-sector opportunities in infrastructure finance.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has named Cas Holloway, commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection, to replace him.

In a prepared statement, Bloomberg said, “As New Yorkers, we were extraordinarily lucky to have Steve Goldsmith make our City government more innovative and efficient.;

Not everyone might agree. Fairly or not, Goldsmith bore much of criticism for the administration’s botched response to last December’s blizzard. The fact that he was in D.C. during and after the storm did not help. Having to sort out some of the administration’s technology projects including the scandal plagued CityTime, undoubtedly further complicated his tenure at City Hall.

Holloway, a lawyer, was at the parks department before heading up environmental protection.
