Pataki announces changes at WTC site

May 13, 2005 12:00AM

Gov. George E. Pataki is appointing James K. Kallstrom, his senior adviser on counterterrorism, to oversee security at the former site of the World Trade Center, and Stefan Pryor, a senior vice president of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, will become its new president, replacing Kevin M. Rampe, who has resigned. Pataki says he will work with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver on a new incentive program to lure out-of-state companies downtown. On another note, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is looking for a company to wring more money out of the retail environment at the World Trade Center. And a majority of New Yorkers say Mayor Bloomberg has taken his eye off the ball at Ground Zero because of his focus on a West Side stadium — but they still want him in charge downtown instead of Gov. Pataki, a new poll found. more [NYT]
