While City Council Speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn in her recent State of the City speech talked about her concerns about the middle class facing an affordability crises attempting to make ends meet living in the Big Apple, her loyal City Council members have no problems making ends meet.

Never shy around a camera or microphone, Quinn quietly issued checks for 50% of each councilmember’s annual awarded lulus of between $4,000 to $28,000. This supplements a $112,000 base salary to her loyal members for chairing a Council committee or subcommittee. The base salary plus lulu is three times what an average constituent earns for a job officially classified as part time.

Hard working municipal civil servant employees and most ordinary middle class New Yorkers would never see such treats from their respective employers.
