On Friday September 21, New York City District Council of Carpenters President/Benefit Fund Trustee and Bilello administration political appointee and longtime adviser, William S. Lebo resigned after a  "Notice of Possible Action" was served on him by Review Officer (RO) Dennis Walsh on Tuesday September, 18.

The RO wrote a letter to Judge Berman on September 28, seeking the "consent of the Court to conduct and oversee" a special election to fill the vacancy on an expedited basis and in accordance with special procedures outlined by the RO.
