“Boss” Bill Ryan, the Democratic grand poobah of the Westchester County Board of Legislators was busy remodeling the legislative offices in the last weeks of 2007 to accomodate an ever-expanding staff.
And all on the taxpayers’ dime, of course.
Funny thing, but after the shuffling of walls and floor plans, three Republican legislators found themselves with less office space. Two existing offices were divided three ways and parceled out to Gordon Burrows of Yonkers, Jim Maisano of New Rochelle and George Oros of Cortlandt.
Gee, how did that happen? Maybe, it comes down to simple math. Let’s see, there are only four Republicans on the 17-member board. That’s one truth.
And, none of them supported Boss Ryan’s recent aborted attempt to substantially raise his salary, as well as the salaries of the other board members. That’s another truth.
One plus one equals two. It’s the wrath of the Boss!
