Hon. John Spencer

Hon. John Spencer

It was in the opening days of March 2015 that Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano announced that Yonkers Office of Veteran Services has hired decorated veteran and former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer as the department’s veteran advocate.The “no show” position was spoken about as if replete with responsibility as expressed by Mayor Spano when he said, “We are proud to have John join the City’s workforce once again. There is no question of John’s commitment and passion for our city, especially towards his fellow veterans. When a veteran comes home, he or she may be vulnerable in adapting to home life. John will be available to these veterans 24-7, every step of the way. John’s first-hand experience and compassion for the needs of our veterans will be a great addition to the services our VA provides for our community.”

In fact it was none other than the Yonkers City Council President Liam McLaughlin who beseeched Mayor Spano to hire his friend John Spencer to the position that would come with a $65,000 per annum remuneration.

Yonkers Tribune has learned through anonymous sources In the know that Mayor Mike Spano has been so impressed by Hon. John “The Little Rich Man” Spencer’s “No Show” responsibilities that he was allocated an additional $30,000 more to his salary.

many have recently learned that John Spencer and Wife Cathy Spring Spencer and their children have suffered foreclosure proceedings and must therefor vacate the premises by the end of next month.

Spencer can now count on an approximately $100,000 pension for serving as a Yonkers City Councilman and as Mayor of Yonkers, the new salary of $95,000 for the responsibilities, such as they are, for the Yonkers Office of Veteran Services, and the income of his wife Cathy Spring Spencer who serves at the pleasure of Yonkers City Council President Liam McLaughlin at a remuneration of $140,000 per annum. for those who may have welled up with emotion in the opening paragraphs, no need to find a tin cup in order to collect funds for former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer.

No updates to John Spencer’s accomplishments have ever made the light of day since his appointment.

    1. All Mouth, No Ass

      There was never anything to fear from those two wimps.

      There were a few people in this City who stood up to them. Now they are on top and those two losers are down out and finished. They win. Spencer and Spring lose.

      In the parlance of the old days in the Bronx: Spencer and Spring are all mouth and no ass!

      May they have health and happiness for the rest of their days but may they stop their phony bullshit.

      McLaughlin is the next loser to be exposed.

  3. Where's Edelman ?

    Would love to hear Mike Edelman’s Defense of his pal John Spencer?

    Probably the same bullshit that he has spewed about him for years. Just a tool on the gravy train.

    100K No Show Job (with 30K increase -Must have the goods on somebody)

  7. Opinion Regarding Spencer

    Opinion regarding John Spencer:

    He is one of the greatest FRAUD ever to come down the pike.

    With the help of a “corrupt media” and that of the established members of the “swamp”, he was portrayed as a financial genius, as a conservative, as one who cares about the well being of the City, and as a great leader.

    He is none of those things.

    He is the following: a great financial failure, inexperienced, uneducated and unsophisticated in maters of finance, law, science, policy or government. He is not a conservative. He doubled our tax rate (or more) and the size of government and gave City Hall away to the unions in exchange for re-election for him and his cronies.

    His legacy include the many $100K to $200K pensions. He presided over the devastation of many Yonkers neighborhoods and the Yonkers schools. (remember Andre aka “Federal Inmate” Hornsby)

    So great was the fraud that the NYS Republican Party thought him worthy of a nomination for the United States Senate. If they knew then what we know now, don’t think it would happen again.

    Wish him the best of health and happiness. Politically, however, and in many other ways he is an insult.

    Someday, somebody should write the truth about his life, experience, credentials and education. It would read as the exact opposite of that which is currently on the record.

    That is fraud.

  8. Government tit

    Why would anyone be surprised by this???????

    Welcome to Yonkers. Once you get in, you get as many of your family and friends jobs as you can…….

    John Larkin got his son, son-in-law, and daughter jobs in Yonkers. It only cost a few “yes” votes from him for his family’s enrichment while the citizens get screwed as usual…….

    What’s news here????????

  9. taxed out

    But I thought the city is broke? Wait till the budget comes out, hold onto your wallets, and run from this shithole of a city, oh crap, I forgot they stick you up when you sell your house to leave too.

  10. Huh

    I don’t understand this. If they are increasing his salary, do they not have to do the same for Spencer’s superior, Louis Navarro? Has his salary been increased?
