Authority Agida . . .

If this NY Post story doesn't give you a case of acid indigestion over our "public authorities," nothing else will: STATE POWER PANEL JUICE$ FIRED EXECS

Two appointees at the Power Authority have been axed. One guy was on the job about a year, the other, 2 1/2 years. . . . But what a way to go . . .
A former senior authority official who is still close to the agency and alerted The Post to the severance packages, said: "It is a sad day when two people who spent only 36 months at the authority get to walk away with $300,000 after they are fired."

You got to be kidding me! Where can one go and get fired, then receive a paycheck worth $68,750.00 contingent upon not being able to find "employment of a comparable level of compensation" in five short months? This authority is out of control! It has become way too cumbersome loaded with political patronage “bribery” jobs. This is why New Yorkers are taxed to their teeth. How embarrassingly repulsive!

Hey Governor Patterson, if you are really serious about saving New Yorker taxpayers from financial ruin: SHOW SOME GUTS AND ABOLISH THIS AUTHORITY TODAY!
