Queens Library president gets $390G salary, luxe office makeover while shedding 130 jobs

“For a classic study of the “Tale of Two Cities,” Mayor de Blasio should visit the Queens Central Library. Patrons of that dilapidated two-story building on Merrick Blvd. in Jamaica have faced years of unending construction and diminished services. But that didn’t stop library President Thomas Galante from spending $140,000 last year to renovate his offices on the building’s second floor. Galante managed this after eliminating nearly 130 library jobs through layoffs and attrition over the past five years.” (via NY Daily News)
