Less than a month after leaving her post at Governor David Paterson‘s office, Tracy Sefl joins Nassau County DA Kathleen Rice as a strategist in her bid to replace Andrew Cuomo as New York Attorney General. At least four Democratic candidates are expected to run for that office.

In the press release, Rice said of Sefl, “I trust Tracy’s political judgment, her integrity, her passion for progressive politics and her ability to effectively communicate with the public and with members of the media.”

Sefl was part of Paterson’s communications team for just under a year. As PRNewser noted last week, the Governor seems to rely more on his inner circle of advisers including David Johnson, the subject of the “bombshell” New York Times story that was expected to force a resignation.
