"Agent of city" spouse promoted

From the NY Post:

The wife of powerhouse PR guru and de Blasio whisperer Jonathan Rosen, one of the infamous “agents of the city” whose communications with City Hall the mayor attempted to shield from the public, has been promoted to a top job at City Hall.

Debbie Rosen was named chief of staff to the first deputy mayor, with a $192,000 salary, a roughly $27,000 raise from her previous role as chief of staff to the budget director.

She has also worked in the state Assembly for six years and for the city’s Health Department under Mayor Mike Bloomberg from 2005 to 2008.

During an unrelated press conference Wednesday, de Blasio parried questions about conflict-of-interest concerns about the wife of a PR guru serving in a top policy position on his staff.

These people are scum. Pure neoliberal scum. What's actually worse is that she worked for the fun size mayor Bloomberg before she joined and rose in rank in the de Faustio confederacy.

This absolutely validates that de Faustio continued Bloombergs disastrous policies and exacerbated the continuing tale of two cities which has now manifested as inverted socialism favoring the wealthy land owners and wormtongue reps like Jon Rosen the wife of the new chief of staff of the deputy mayor (which one, for I think there are 20, the NY Post does not say but because of the links and the cronyism involved I am going to surmise the fixer Alicia Glen).

This corrupt arrogant mayor is making Tammany Hall look tame.

Not even trying to hide it. They have no shame. No fear they are going to be called out.

I was watching a guy from the MTA talk about improving the track and signal systems. He was laughing saying he didn't care if it was a millionaire tax, an increase in property or sales tax, he would take whatever he needed to get his money!

How about cutting back on the overhead of the bloated administration?

So, what are We, the People going to do about it? It's right under our noses, and once again it's all about ALL PAY and NO WORK for de BLASS-holes's kleptocratic, 'kakistocracy' of monetary locusts, all of whom feed off of the human misery of the ever languishing taxpayer, and not a single crony of City Hall ever took and passed a civil service exam――like every lower level, civil service peasant had to take in order to clear a paltry $50,000 a year.

This is what openly practiced government tyranny and anarchy look like, and under THIS crooked-and-corrupt administration, they can do anything they like, with impunity――even change the laws and reject public referendum (like de BLASS-hole enacted two years ago, when he approved an even higher pay raise of 38% for his city council-liar monkeys than what was recommended by the fake payroll review commission that included a Conde Nast henchman on the panel――a testament to how mad with corruption and drunk with power this administration always HAS been, exactly like another criminal like Bloomberg, both of whom belong in jail for life)!

❝Voting has become a farce, if indeed it was ever anything else.

❝Voting is not an act of political freedom. It is an act of political conformity. Those who refuse to vote are not expressing silence. They are screaming in the politician's ear: 'You do not represent me. This is not a process in which my voice matters. I do not believe you.'❞ ―Wendy McElroy

I honestly don't know what I, as an individual, can do. I never voted for this current disgrace to the office of mayor, either time. We now have a real clown as head of the city council, trading a lobbyist for Puerto Rico for another kind of crook, one who's already hooked up with another crook, Cuomo. I feel like I'm buried under 6 layers of corrupt, inept, criminals and have no true government representation. DeDumDum, Corey Johnson, Meng (a former immigration lawyer---bet I know how SHE feels about DACA, chain migration, visa lottery, etc.), the archly corrupt Schumer and the terminally idiotic Gillibrand, and finally the arch criminal Cuomo.
