MONEY FOR NOTHING

http://www.where-to-turn.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=45280

NY POST


In a perfect example of closing the barn door after the horse is out the mayor is now calling for the shutdown of the LMDC.

For years we have been complaining about how money was being thrown into this money pit.

We have asked for audits of the salaried positions as well as contracts that were authorized by the LMDC.

And we have been totally ignored.

One only has to look at Ground Zero or the Deutsche Bank Building or even the New Transit Hub to see that there was never any concern about getting things done and even less concern about fiscal responsibility.

Had even 5% of what was wasted on this agency been put towards 9/11 Health Benefits the mayor would have the 10% city portion that the federal government is now requiring.

But no he would rather ignore the golden parachutes that were given to former LMDC employees as well as the political patronage that continues to fill these executive positions at the LMDC.

Along with the revolving door policy that basically acted as a stepping stone (along with a healthy paycheck) until a better job opened up.

And all the while the 9/11 concerns were ignored, little progress was made at Ground Zero and billions of dollars were wasted.

But they will finally close up shop and walk away with better jobs and no one will ever even ask for any accountability.

Business as usual at Ground Zero and we have heard it all before.
