I am going to keep this brief: Why are we paying our new Comptroller $15,000 more than the previous one?
Sandra Clarson, our last comptroller made $130,000 per year while Jack Schnirman’s guy Jeffrey Nogid will be making $145,000 (Source – Newsday : Nassau budget head leaves for Long Beach).
Can we afford the $15,000 more annually? Where are the cost savings we keep hearing about? Did I miss something? Is our financial crisis over? If we have so much money to throw around, why not give something back to us residents. Free milk and cookies every wednesday?
Those of you who follow this blog know how I feel about city managers
, elected mayors, accountability
etc. (cough cough) A city manager lacks true accountability (cough cough). Long Beach would be better served by an elected mayor. Yep, I said it and you can read more about that here: Long Beach Needs a Mayor
