Guy Velella Dies At 66
Celeste Katz of the Daily News reports that former State Senator Guy Velella has died at 66. Velella had lung cancer and had recently told friends that he had 3-6 months to live. Velella was a complicated figure since he was immensely popular in his district and powerful in Albany, but he resigned in disgrace after pleading guilty to bribery charges.
