Our sources at the Ellicott Square Building report that one of Carl Paladino's longtime associates, H. Michael Pascall, is on his short list for Lieutenant Governor. Pascall, pictured here on the left, would not confirm nor deny the report but it has been confirmed by two high ranking members of Paladino's inner circle. When reached by phone Pascall said, "I am honored to be mentioned for the position of Lieutenant Governor. Right now, I am concentrating on performing my current job to the best of my abilities. I would definitely entertain any offers to serve in Carl's administration but first, I'd have to ask God for guidance and consult with my family. Any speculation at this time would be presumptuous at best."
Pascall is a 2008 graduate of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. He was also the winner of the prestigious Peabody Award for excellence in 2002.
