A top aide to the Rev. Al Sharpton will be getting $170,000 a year from taxpayers to serve as chief of staff to Chirlane McCray, Mayor de Blasios wife.
The mayor confirmed the prominent position that his wife is set to play at City Hall with the appointment of Rachel Noerdlinger, who has worked for Sharpton since 1999.

I couldn’t care less what New York (city or state) does. I don’t expect they’ll be in the same country as us after this is all shaken out.
Hey, thanks for all the support to a NYC conservative.
I’m not against you, I’m against your governor, the mayor of NYC and many of the politicians and residents there. BTW, the welcome mat is out down here.
The wife of the mayor needs a Chief of Staff?
Wait a minute. Mayor de Blasio campaigned hard against income inequality. A $170,000 salary is not equal to the average NYC salary.
So it's a misprint. Or it even could be a Marxist prank. I'll bet the salary is really $17,000 a year.
She’s following Michelle’s example. Not elected to anything, but behaves like she is. I hope Mrs. DeB’s schemes work as well as Mrs. O’s attempts at controlling school lunch content.
Pass more popcorn please!
I wondered the same. This governing business is expensive, isn’t it? I guess it’s 10 (or more) for 1, when voting.
What if regular jobs worked like political jobs. We would be hired on and we could then employee all of our family and friends.
Good luck to you EinNYC! Oh wait, aren’t you supposed to leave the state, per Cuomo?
You can come over here to NJ like I did, as Archie Bunker said: NJ will take anybody!
And I live in a nice republican part of the state too. When we first moved here our neighbor’s had a McCain/Palin sign in their yard. It was like being in an alternate universe!
is the mayor’s wife in a paid job on his staff as well;
if she’s not in a paid position then how does she rate a $170k assistant; who the hell does she thinks she is anyway, Michelle Obama??? /sarc
...so, NYC voters have an unelected individual on the City’s dole who has a staff member making over 6 figures, what gives? It is quite obvious that this DiBlasio guy will turn NYC into a chess pool within a few months. Then there’s Governor Coumo and his anti-conservative, anti-pro-life rant. Heard that Hannity is leaving New York state... I’m willing to bet that a lot of wealthy folks will follow... and take their money and wealth with them.
So the featherbedding begins.
“The wife of the mayor needs a Chief of Staff?”
And even worse, if there’s a Chief of Staff, there must be a whole staff just for the mayors wife! Who knew NYC was going to be run by a new royalty!
They couldn’t do much worse with the school lunches. Frozen carb crap nuked to a fare-thee-well, that’s what the poor kids get. There are salads and way-overcooked veggies, but usually only the girls take any of those. The cookie/snack machine gets plenty of play. I cannot figure out why there is a cookie/snack machine vending pure garbage to compete with the at least semi-nutritious cafeteria food.
So, I will have to tough it out through this commie lunatic and his loony-tunes wifey who has delusions of grandeur. The first educational ball he's tossed, that crazy principal who doesn't come into her school or comes at 11 a.m. and the teachers are harassed halfway to heck, the kids have no books, etc.--she's still the principal of that unfortunate school. He hasn't ordered her removed. We teachers (who trade emails and texts a LOT) are not impressed.
Cuomo knows, for my money, where he can go. It’s waaaay down south, with very warm temperatures. BYOP (bring your own pitchfork).
Good luck to you. I love visiting NYC, living there would be impossible.
Why does the mayor’s wife need a staff??
