YONKERS, NY – November 12, 2012 – Yonkers City Hall offices were closed
today in honor and with respect to the survivors, fallen and wounded who have
and continue to serve the nation on Veterans Day. Today is also the second week
in which Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano’s staff member Denise Egiziaco, reacting to
the wrath of Hurricane Sandy had chosen to keep her Mercedes under the watchful
eyes of camera surveillance and the unlikelihood of damage to her car on the 6th
floor level of the City Hall Garage. And besides, she can use a City SUV day
and night at the city’s expense and she can fill up with gas at no cost to her
while other Yonkersites wait in line to get their turn at filling up their gas
tank and have to pay for gasoline as well. The free gas and use of a city
vehicle is a perk only to those who work for Mayor Mike Spano and exceed the
minimum $100,000 plus benefits minimum remuneration to qualify.
Lest anyone consider applying, best they be forewarned those positions are
And so the stomach turns.Where is the Alka-Seltzer when you need it?
The systems to deny abuse of the systems are non-existent in Mayor Mike
Can you imagine, she earns $120,000 per annum, doing what is still
unclear. She games the system to fill up the gas tank of car that is part of the city fleet she has exclusively driven 24/7 these past two weeks. To add further
insult,she demands DPW personnel fill up her SUV at no cost to her because she is too
busy taking a cigarette break to bother.
For those with connections, Yonkers is a wonderful place to rip off. Don’t
apply for these benefits unless you know how to yank someone's chain.
