The same people that thought Stratton needed a raise! In financial distress they dole out raises. No conscious. Keep taking the public's hard earned dollars for their own gain and wealth. No public servant deserves a salary above $40,000 a year. Enough is enough. How much do these people need to live comfortable.

Just another agency run without adequate oversite by political lackeys.

NYRA, APA, Thruway Authority, among others that should be gutted and rebuilt with people without their own agendas,

This "over payment" is due to trying to compete with private industry for the top talent. If they could have attracted the same level of proficiency, competance and experience for a much lower salary I am sure they would have done that years ago.

Why does NYRA have so many board members and why are they paid so much. They are losing millions of dollars a year. They should be paying to work their with that kind of job performance!
