Fwd: COIB Settlements Announced

Please read these fines below.
It appears that violating city conflict of interest rules results in a minor slap on the wrist.
Many cases that result in a fine that is never paid and also reductions due to not able to pay.  When do we do that for homeowners? See https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/coib/downloads/pdf2/enf-docs/Enforcement_Fines.pdf

See  https://www.seethroughny.net/payrolls/138102820  one of the city employees who was a city employee plus did business with the city as a private business (a conflict of interest) is paid over $200K as a firefighter.
Who is tracking these payments???
This is a salary of $85K and actualyearly pay of $202K   Where is the explanation?
If we need that much overtime, that seems like a mismanagement issue.

Look at this finally city workers are being fined and tracked for using City cars for personal commuting

Misuse of City Resources. The Director of  Information Services in the Enterprise Infor- mation Technology Services Department  (EITS) at H+H was responsible for managing  EITS pool vehicles. He was not authorized to  use pool vehicles for his personal commute.  Nevertheless, during an eleven-month peri- od, he regularly used pool vehicles to com- mute between his workplace in Manhattan  and his residence in Queens. He also made  four unauthorized personal trips in close  proximity to his home on days he was not  working for the City. The Director paid a  $5,500 fine, which took into account that his  official responsibilities included safeguarding  the proper use of EITS pool vehicles.

Felix G. Rohatyn, Financier Who Piloted New York’s Rescue, Dies at 91

A very sad day when a voice of truth dies.  See http://bit.ly/thanksfornothingaoc and look for a video with Mr Rohatyn speaking the truth.
https://theunionjournal.com/felix-g-rohatyn-financier-who-piloted-new-yorks-rescue-dies-at-91/

Just after the Fed's chairman, Arthur F. Burns, returned by a meeting with European leaders and cautioned Mr. Ford of this threat to international financial markets failed the White House agree to the loan guarantees.Mr. Rohatyn was hailed for standing up to Mayor Beame as well as due to their ability to achieve agreement with bankers and union leaders alike. However, the chaos — a strike by sanitation workers, a tide of police layoffs, increases in transit , the imposition of tuition fees for the very first time in the City University of New York and, most importantly, the reduction of town liberty, yet temporary — redounded for decades.The catastrophe didn't abate until 1978, when Mr. Rohatyn invented a Student financing bundle, which traded short…

NBC News: Mom whose baby was ripped from her arms by officers to get $625K

Amazing how New York City gives away taxpayer money and abuses the people in the city.  
We definitely need a new administration.

Look at this.  City employees are using other city employees as their personal chauffeurs and the only penalty is a 30 suspension and some money and demotion.   Amazing what about the voice of the tax payer that is paying for all this?
The homeowners get a greater than 6% increase in property taxes each year while inflation is near zero and city workers only get a slap on the wrist.
I'm sure they  keep their pensions.  Amazing!

More elections due to redistricting

Did you know that in the 2021 upcoming council person election, that they seem to only serve for 2 years and must be re-elected, it appears. yet again in 2023.
See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City_Council
Council members are elected every four years, except for two consecutive two-year terms every twenty years to allow for redistricting between the terms due to the national census (starting in 2001 and 2003 for the 2000 Census and again in 2021 and 2023 for the 2020 Census).[1]
This seems to only affect council persons since the district lines for mayor etc. appear to be unaffected.

Here is an example from the conflict of interest board that helps people understand the law

We should do something similar for the Department of Finance explaining how assessment changes are done equitably. Etc.
