The Signs They Are A-Changing


Dean Skelos’ name is back on the door of the Senate majority office suite in the Capitol Building.

Skelos, a Long Island Republican who served briefly as majority leader after Joe Bruno resigned, moved his offices down the hall on Wednesday to his new old digs.

Although he technically will not be majority leader until Republicans officially come into power on the first of the year, the maintenance crew figured it was a safe bet Skelos would be given the post.

On the now minority Democratic side, there was no sign indicating John Sampson, D-Brooklyn, was the new leader. Democratic spokesman Austin Shafran’s name does hang outside the minority press offices.

The majority offices are larger and connect to the Senate chamber and, perhaps most importantly, include a kitchen and lounge.
