Barely three months after stepping down from the City Council, Peter Vallone Jr. is back, this time working under Gov. Cuomo as a special assistant to the state’s corrections commissioner.

The position suits Vallone, who partners with his father and brother at their law firm in Astoria, worked as an assistant district attorney, chaired the Public Safety Committee for 12 out of the 12 years he was in office and is rumored to want to run for Queens District Attorney when Richard Brown steps down.

Vallone’s new gig is one of many additions Cuomo announced, including a new chief operating officer for New York State Homes and Community Renewal, deputy director of the Division of Veterans Affairs and deputy director of the Community, Opportunity & Reinvestment Initiative.
