Tweeding pays off for Vito's pal

From the NY Post:

The departing director of the politically connected Ridgewood Bushwick social-services empire founded by Brooklyn Democratic leader Vito Lopez will be collecting up to $135,000 in unused sick time and vacation pay, The Post has learned.

The city ordered Christiana Fisher booted after the Department of Investigation found she had collected questionable “retroactive” pay that boosted her compensation to $782,000 in fiscal year 2009. Her 2008 salary was $336,000.

As part of the deal, Fisher was allowed to serve as an unpaid consultant to new CEO James Cameron and cash in sick and vacation time accumulated over a 38-year career up to a maximum of $135,000.

Cameron had been serving as the chief operating officer of Ridgewood Bushwick for the last 18 months.
