8 Are Removed as Queens Library Trustees

“Eight members of the Queens Library board of trustees were dismissed on Wednesday by Mayor Bill de Blasio and the borough president, Melinda Katz, according to the mayor’s office. The board members were removed after they voted in April against firing Thomas W. Galante, director of the Queens library system, who has been under investigation for using money earmarked for library improvements for renovations to his personal office and for steering contracts for the work to a friend. Mr. Galante is paid about $400,000 a year. His expenditures have become the subject of inquiries by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the United States attorney general; the New York City Department of Investigation; and Scott M. Stringer, the city comptroller.” (via NYTimes.com)
