Ray Riley gets the $133,250/year GOP plum at the top of the tree at the Brooklyn BOE --- But, what about Georgea, didn't she want this ? ? ?
Is the book closing on Diane Haslett-Rudiano ? ? ?
Doesn’t Ted Ghorra even have a clue that HE should have made this pick --- BUT --- Does a “rubber stamp” need to have a clue about anything ? ? ?
One of my best insider contacts just sent me this in an E-mail:
“…. The city Board of Elections has hired a new chief clerk for the Brooklyn borough office, nearly a year after kicking up a swirl of controversy for improperly purging voters from its rolls…. Raymond J. Riley, a Republican from Brooklyn, will replace Diane Haslett-Rudiano, who had been suspended without pay since last April…. The post is responsible for overseeing operations at the Brooklyn borough office and comes with a six-figure salary. In 2016, the position paid $133,250 according to BOE records…. Brooklyn Deputy Clerk Betty Ann Canizio, a Democrat, remains suspended without pay, because of the investigation into the purge…. According to the BOE’s rules, when a voter is removed from the roles, it requires approval by two staff members — a Republican and Democrat…. An acting deputy clerk continues to serve in that [Democrat] role….”
This is ONE of the reasons that Marty Golden wanted to have control of the GOP's piece of the Brooklyn Board --- DIRTY PAY-OFFS to his friends and supporters..... BUT WHAT ABOUT THE LAWYERS INVOLVED IN ALL THIS DIRTY DEALING --- TED GHORRA & SIMON SHAMOUN ? ? ? What a pair of jamokes ! ! !
