Pension fund business comes up in Bruno trial

The Post reports on some developments in the trial of former New York Senate leader Joseph Bruno.

Mark Congi, who was also Laborers Local 91’s assistant business agent until his 2002 indictment for racketeering, testified Monday at Bruno’s federal corruption trial. He said that business agent Michael Quarcini ran both the union and the $50 million pension fund, though there were other fund trustees, himself among them, and an investment adviser.

“He felt to make Mr. Bruno happy, we’d invest with this company, and he’d do us favors in return,” Congi said. “He felt the more money we gave to the company the more help we were going to get from Senator Bruno.”
