Chirlane McCray’s ThriveNYC enjoys $2M staff of 14 amid budget crisis

There’s no money for regular trash pickups or to maintain city parks, but Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife enjoys a 14-member staff — including a $70,000 videographer that captured her baking cookies during the pandemic.

Some of the Chirlane McCray staffers, who cost city taxpayers a combined $2 million a year, work for the first lady’s $1.25 billion mental health initiative ThriveNYC that’s come under fire for its lack of metrics.

“Whatever happened to ThriveNYC?” asked City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Queens).

“How much taxpayer money will the mayor’s wife pilfer before leaving office? How can she sleep at night hiring these hacks knowing so many other city workers are facing layoffs this fall? This is a disgrace!” Ulrich fumed.

McCray has a core team of eight staffers, according to a recent list provided to The Post following a Freedom of Information Law request filed in October 2019. That despite the city facing layoffs of 22,000 municipal workers over the coronavirus-induced budget crisis.

There’s a $117,000-a-year speechwriter, even though McCray held that same position under former Mayor David Dinkins, and a $150,000-a-year senior advisor who was recruited in April after de Blasio announced a hiring freeze to help close a $7 billion deficit caused by the coronavirus.

But she has at least six other city employees deputized to her office from other public agencies, as was first reported by The City.

They include the $70,000 videographer McCray brought on in February. The shooter, who is listed as a Dept. of Health employee in city records, filmed the First Lady making ginger snaps on April 2 during the coronavirus lockdown.

Other members of the shadow staff who participated in a “Team Lunch” in The Bronx in January 2019, according to McCray’s public schedule, are a $143,000-a-year public relations director, also from the Dept. of Health, and a special assistant from the mayor’s office who makes $115,000.

Gov. Cuomo looks to cash in with book on pandemic despite NY death toll

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has a new book coming out — and it’s all about himself.

The three-term Democrat’s latest tome, “American Crisis,” promises to give readers a behind-the-scenes look into Cuomo’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak — even as the pandemic rages on.

But there was no mention on whether it would include the governor bungling the response to COVID-19 in nursing homes, which has left at least 6,600 dead — a move he’s vehemently defended.

But New York’s coronavirus death toll in nursing homes, already among the highest in the nation, could actually be a significant undercount. Unlike every other state with major outbreaks, the Cuomo administration only counts residents who died on nursing home property and not those who were transported to hospitals and died there. That statistic could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll. But so far Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.

I don’t think $150K/year in NYC is that extravagant. I don’t really know though....or particularly care.

Retired NYPD sergeant attacked in Garment District beatdown caught on video

A retired NYPD sergeant was punched and kicked as he lay helplessly on the ground in a brutal Manhattan beatdown caught on security footage, police sources told The Post.

The former cop can be seen speaking with his assailant for at least a minute last Tuesday morning as they stand outside a Garment District deli on West 39th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenue, according to disturbing footage obtained by The Post.

The suspect, whom police sources have identified as Masterjadin Roman, 20, then allegedly throws a bottle at the retired officer.

The man charges at Roman, who manages to wrestle the NYPD veteran to the ground and land more than a dozen punches to his head.

It’s the socialist model at work. Have you ever seen a socialist/communist dictator that wasn’t living the life of luxury?
