The dotted lines that connect people and circumstance and employment prospects and positions in Yonkers traverse time and circumstance. No matter how it is defined, the apron strings do not wear thin no matter the expanse of time.
With respect to the above, please consider the Yonkers Office of Emergency Management (Y.O.E.M.) and City Hall’s still unannounced departure of Director Cory R. Hartman. Hartman is being cast aside for the almost three-decade long loyalty and friendship that continues to thrive with the retired Mamaroneck City Police Officer, former York State Assemblyman Louis Mosiello, jewelry store owner, and the allegedly “hush, hush” place to hang about until other employment could be arranged. No hassle for the likes of former New York State Senator Nick Spano and present Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano. Abracadabra… Louis Mosiello’s son Mike Mosiello, a one-time, four-year veteran of the Yonkers Police Department, in the post of a Yonkers Police Officers, is designated to succeed Hartman as the new Director of the Yonkers Office of Emergency Management. After a decade and a half not employed as a Yonkers Police Officer one must wonder if this “new” responsibility will require little effort, but instead embolden Mike Mosiello’s pension for years hence. The position of Y.O.E.M. Director is said to be full time. The remuneration has been requested of Yonkers City Hall and will be appended herein if/when received. Time will reveal whether Director Mike Mosiello will conform to the the full-time demands of the position, whether he has the expertise to manage the responsibilities of Y.O.E.M., or if this position will require on the job training.
Next, we move to the realm of Yonkers Human Resources Commissioner Carlos Moran. For lack of another term, Christine Dodge, new to the responsibility of Acting Deputy Commissioner at Yonkers Human Resources and one-time colleague of Lenny Spano, son of former Westchester County Clerk Leonard Spano and Executive Director and CEO of the Westchester School for Special Children has been moved up the food chain for who she knows. Her previous “qualifications” had her working in a secretarial capacity for the lying, vindictive, and inept former Yonkers Human Resources Commissioner Paula Redd. Dodge will earn $90,000 annually.
All that can be said is that times they are a changing NOT.
