Longtime Eric Adams pal goes from $30K pension to $240K a year after landing cushy NYC gig

A longtime pal of Mayor Eric Adams rose from retired 911 dispatcher living off a $30,000 pension to be tapped for one of the highest-paid roles in city government, a $241,000-a-year gig.

The NYPD appointed Lisa White as its deputy commissioner for employee relations in May — with her official city bio touting her past work as an “Interim Supervisor’’ with the police department’’s 911 system, from which she retired with a base salary of $53,000 in December 2019, and later as a “Field Supervisor’’ with the Census Bureau.

Now White — who had rented a room to Adams for four years at her Brooklyn address, according to The City — is in charge of overseeing the mental health and morale of the NYPD’s 35,000 uniformed members.

And she’s drawing a salary that is nearly five times what her previous 911 operator job paid. ...

In January, Adams tried to appoint his brother, Bernard Adams, to a $242,000-a-year post as the NYPD’s deputy commissioner of governmental affairs before the kibosh was put on the controversial move.  ...

Well,in his defense,the 240k money next year will be the equivalent of the 30k money of just a couple of years ago.
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!
