QNS. BEEP GET$ SELF IN A PIXEL
By LEONARD GREENE, NY Post
Picture this -- a job that pays more than what most city workers make for taking snapshots of Queens Borough President Helen Marshall.
Despite a statewide austerity directive brought on by hard financial times, Marshall is renewing a contract with Dominick Totino Photography Inc., Of Flushing, for $85,000, according to a notice in the City Record, New York's municipal paper of record.
A spokesman for Marshall was unavailable. Totino did not immediately return a call.
Marshall and the city's four other borough presidents have come under recent fire for discretionary spending sprees despite diminished roles. Only Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz's 2009 discretionary spending budget of $302,000 exceeds Marshall's $280,000 fund.
