Day 346, Nothing Changes
In today's Post Fredric U. Dicker and Kenneth Lovett report that Priscilla Almodovar, CEO and president of the State of New York Mortgage Agency, is set to receive a $45,650-a-year pay raise from $204,350 to $250,000. Ms. Almodovar's raise alone is more than I made working as a Press Officer for Governor Pataki throughout his first year in office. And the agency she heads is so far removed from what is important to the Executive Chamber, I have no idea what it's supposed to do beyond handing out subsidized mortgages and holding a buyer's hand at the closing.
Needless to say, such a large raise is confounding for a Governor who proclaimed Day One, Everything Changes. Oh. I forgot to mention what Dicker and Lovett also reported:
"Almodovar is the wife of Spitzer's handpicked insurance superintendent, Eric Dinallo, a close friend of the governor who served under him in the Attorney General's Office."
