Westchester County executive Rob Astorino, the Republican candidate for governor, has been busy.
In addition to running the county and running for election both last year and this year—for reelection as county executive and now for governor—he has a consulting job with Connecticut-based Townsquare Media, the Daily News reported Friday.
The job is bringing in about $30,000 a year, the newspaper said. As county executive he earns $160,760. Astorino had a long career in radio before he was elected county executive in 2009.
Democrats are questioning whether the work violates the county charter’s requirement that he work full time as county executive and also say he has refused to release his county schedule, which would make it clear how much time he is devoting to his day job.
An Astorino campaign spokeswoman told the Daily News that the job was cleared through the county attorney’s office.
