Secretive Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano has been prepping City
Hall to the tastes of a higher power than him. The first move was to tear down
the stand-alone office of Denise Egiziaco who is on staff to Mayor Spano. The
open office look seemed to create a schism among too many within and without
Yonkers City Hall. Emulating the controlling terror tactics the Secret Police
of former Romanian President Nicolae Ceaușescu, Mayor Mike Spano
decided to send his "trusted" emissary Denise Egiziaco to the Yonkers Parking
Violations Bureau on a temporary basis, some say for half-a-day every midweek workday, in order to
maintain surveillance of some kind over the PVB.
Interestingly enough, last week, Director
of Yonkers Parking Violations Bureau Frank McGovern retired. Then we learned that upon retirement, McGovern was
offered a consultant’s position with the PVB. He will return to his
responsibilities in another five-week’s time. Mayor Spano’s musical chairs
routine found Deputy Director Anita Morck having to suffer being passed over
again. It seems when Morck questioned what was going on, she was instructed to “shut
up and do what you are told!”.
It seems when you obey every
demand with a smile, follow every instruction, post haste and stay mum about
anything and everything, you are treated as worth less than others. That is not
right and one would expect Mayor Mike Spano would know better. Yonkers City
Hall lore has always known that Morck was really in charge of the department,
that McGovern was paid under the designation of Yonkers Deputy Finance
Commissioner so that the Yonkers City Council wouldn’t know, much less figure
out under which line he was paid, skewing the process of scrutiny topsy turvy.
So the new scheme has
Egiziaco's dismissive and abusive tones over the Yonkers Parking Violations
Bureau, hopefully not with the same condescending and arrogant attitude she has
been spewing as she lauded over other department heads throughout Yonkers City
Hall. Egiziaco believes taking care of Mayor Mike Spano’s staff requires her to
It does seem that Mayor Mike
Spano’s conduct and demeanor is one only some can see through; yet there are
only two who can demand he stop dead in his tracks… think N first; think M
Lastly, will the staff
changes equation for the better for Yonkersites? How so? Why the
cover-up? Why the deceit?
Yonkers City Hall is a
disappointment because Mike Spano said he would be different when he had to
know he would debase himself to such low depths as this behavior.
What did Anita Morck do to
deserve this ill treatment? How many others have been passed over in one
department or the other?
Mayor Mike Spano can play
games with the Yonkers PVB, but he can’t clean out the extortionist at the Yonkers Parking Authority? Why? Because he likes it that way. I never met an American
Indian with a forked tongue, yet Mike Spano does a rendition that has at times
seemingly fooled the City of Yonkers.
Where are the contracts Mayor Spano? When will you kick Deputy Mayor Sue Gerry to the northern part of the
county? What’s taking so long? Is she asking too much money to exit? Perhaps
this is the time to man up and take it out of your own pocket?
Yes, Mayor Mikey likes it
How many more years must
