John Liu, NYC's first Asian American comptroller got a telephone message at City Hall this morning from me, Suzannah B. Troy. John Liu has taken the first steps to make NYC gov spending available to the people on a website called Comptroller NYC gov but we need more accountability and transparency and we don't have that!
Ask Mike Bloomberg a question he doesn't like and look out, like questions about a third term, the poor, Cayman Island Investments and leaving early Friday for Bermuda.
But this call to John Liu's office this morning where I left my name, telephone number and message stated we need more accountability. The tax payers need to know how much money Christine Quinn and her staff are costing the tax payers when they use top law firms like the kind Goldman Sachs uses, Sullivan & Cromwell as one example plus other high priced defense attorneys specializing in White Collar crime.
The people of New York have a right to know and need immediate accessibility and a current cost as of today on this expense and others.
I found the website on David Siefman's piece in The New York Post. David is a long time reporters of news from City Hall. His piece exposes some very interesting spending including nanny mayor Mike Bloomberg so check it out and click on the link. The New York Daily News also exposed NYC government workers have spent $100,000 on car rides home.
I guess public transportation is not an option for NYC gov workers.
