Gareth Rhodes, a former congressional candidate and ex-aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, has landed a job back in the Cuomo administration.

Rhodes has been appointed special assistant to Acting Superintendent of Financial Services Linda Lacewell, the agency on Wednesday announced.

Rhodes’s appointment was among a slate of new hires and appointments announced by the department.

“We welcome these talented, dedicated, and diverse individuals, with their invaluable government and industry experience, to the Executive Team at DFS,” Lacewell said. “I am proud to work together with our new team members as we work to accomplish the mission and goals of the Department and continue to move New York forward.”

Lacewell herself is no stranger to the second floor of the Capitol, having been a longtime advisor and aide to Cuomo.

Rhodes last year was among the crowded field of Democrats seeking the nomination in the 19th congressional district in the Hudson Valley, losing to now-Rep. Antonio Delgado.

In his new role, Rhdoes will be working on policy affecting law, communications and intergovernmental issues. He recently graduated from Harvard Law School.
