As you already know, Barack Obama has named Mamaroneck resident Timothy Geithner to be his treasury secretary. Our reporters Allan Drury and Christine Pizzuti rolled out to Mamaroneck yesterday to stalk reach out to his friends and neighbors.

I’m getting word that current treasury secretary Henry Paulson actually swung by Mamaroneck to chit-chat with Geithner over the weekend. How did I miss this?!?
Anywho, add Geithner to the list of Obama’s crew members that have Westchester ties. His chief of staff Rahm Emanuel attended Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville and one of Obama’s transition advisors Christopher Edley Jr. grew up in New Rochelle. Chappaqua resident Hillary Clinton is very likely to become Secretary of State and Bedford resident Robert F. Kennedy Jr. could possibly become Secretary of the Environmental Protection Agency.
Also, the Huffington Post reports Howard Wolfson could become Hillary Clinton’s State Department spokesman if she gets the job. Wolfson grew up in Yonkers.
