Frank Lombardi of the Daily News sounds like a guy after my own heart. Here's The first line of his article in today's paper:
Street namings and resolutions don't come cheap.
Here's what he's talking about:
For the first time, the cost of running the City Council will average $1 million per member.
Under a new budget approved yesterday, the Council will spend $54.6 million on itself in 2007-08 - a 7.5% increase over the last budget.
That works out to an average $1,070,754 for each of its 51 members.
Think your City Council member is worth $1M?
