From the NY Post:
Deputy Mayor Patti Harris’ stepson enjoyed a meteoric city career, with nine raises in nine years, before he quit his $175,000 job last August and got a pretax $57,803 payment for unused vacation days, The Post has learned.
Michael Lebow is the son of Harris’ husband, MTA board member Mark Lebow.
Soon after Harris became Mayor Bloomberg’s top deputy, Michael, then 27, was hired by the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunication at $115,000 a year to help launch the 311 call-in system.
He’d dropped out of Washington University and held IT gigs at Bloomberg LP and Rudin Management. His first job required six years’ experience for those without a BA.
“It’s actually rare to find a tech person who didn’t start working in the field as a young student,” said City Hall spokesman Stu Loeser.
But an ex-DOITT worker griped: “No one knew exactly what he did, but it was ‘Hands off . . . He’s Patty Harris’ stepson.’ ”

Wipe your chin lady.
That's the reason Civil Service was created. To stop cronyism. The kid never would have passed a background check on his work history and never would have gotten the job !
There's always room in CUNY for another connected political crony. Several DoITT people were imported into CUNY.
Hey! It's a transparent data-driven meritocracy we're living in.What part of it don't you crappers get?
Mommy, Daddy, the kid--paychecks for all. This family must heart New York!
That's the reason Civil Service was created. To stop cronyism.
The law must be enforced and executive appointments must be approved by lawmakers.
Sen. Schumer's wife will increase and maintain her city pension benefits with her position at C.U.N.Y. she was previously the commissioner of D.O.T.
