After months of scathing revelations, NYC Mayor Bloomberg has decided it’s time to revamp the city’s Housing Authority.
The NYC Housing Authority can’t get repairs done on time, they can’t complete the paperwork for federal housing funds on time, they can’t manage to spend money allocated by the City Council for closed circuit cameras, they tried to hide a critical consultant’s report from the taxpayers who paid for it, their board members are paid outlandish salaries. In other words, they’re a mess. But Bloomberg defended the status quo until the day the Housing Authority was forced to release the consultant’s report.
Finally, Bloomberg acts. Though he still loves John Rhea, his incompetant appointee to the Authority’s chair.
Bloomberg is a great manager? Ha! Bite me.
