The omnipresent Azi of the NY Observer just issued the list of NYC Council Committee Assignments. Our Manhattan members are listed below with the extra money they get for their leadership positions. Click on the link at the bottom for the full list.
Speaker, Quinn, $28,000
Assistant Majority Leader and Standard & Ethics Chairwoman, Dickens, $15,000
Aging, Lappin, $10,000
Education, Jackson, $10,000
Government Operations, Brewer, $10,000
Higher Education, Rodriguez, $10,000
Lower Manhattan Redevelopment, Chin, $10,000
Public Housing, Mendez, $10,000
Technology, Garodnick, $10,000
Of note: Councilmember Charles Barron was stripped of his chairmanship of the Education committee. Rumored to be because of his campaign for Council Speaker. Also, noticeably absent from the list is Councilmember Dan Garodnick, who had previously been the chair of the Committee on Planning. I’m deducting points from myself for being impatient. Azi ended up posting Garodnick’s committee a little later (Tech Committee, a matter close to our hearts!). It is important to note, however, that Garodnick is forgoing his lu-lu.
