1797 State Employees Make More than Governor Cuomo

          The public is conditioned to believe politicians are rich, overpaid and crooked. Fact is there are countless state employees who make more than the elected executive or lawmakers.
           Many school superintendents wouldn't get out of bed in the morning for what the Governor makes,  and all sorts of people like the one just chosen to run the Tug Hill Commission make more than or local State Senator..

Well, I guess if you don't count the value of his free private flights for himself and his paramour, then you could say he makes less than those people. But who cares? There are many of us who would do the governors job for free or even pay to get to do that job. Just like Doheny spent tons of his own money and Woolfie spent tons of his wife's money, to get a Rep job. But that is not the case with super superintendents.

But not to many School Supers have the influence over things in the State the Gov. does, let's see he can create a law, pass it in the middle of the night, create a commission, dissolve it, pander to both sides of the aisle, watch as numerous members of the inner circle are arrested, and live in a Mansion rent-free, vacation at a moments notice,(with taxpayer paid bodyguards w/15 rds or more mags) so he doesn't get paid much???????????

Oh Boo Hoo. Cry me a river. There's not a NY governor in my lifetime that hasn't been paid four times what the POS is worth. Goes double for the members of the legislature for the last 25 years, too.

And just for the record, there isn't a school superintendent in the state that's worth what they are getting paid, either.

Agreed 708. But the retired ones always seem to get to double dip. Look at TI!!!

TI Supt. retired from NYS, retired from same title in Pennsylvania= two supt.[pensions, plus SS and additionally gets $300 a day as Acting Supt. when one retires anywhere in the North Country.

Not bad, huh?
