Queens Borough President Melinda Katz urges court to allow her to remove library trustees

“Queens Borough President Melinda Katz is urging a Brooklyn federal court to dismiss a lawsuit filed by six trustees of the scandal-plagued Queens Library. The trustees, seeking to block her ouster of them, claim a new state law that grants both Katz and the mayor the power to remove any trustee before the end of their normal five-year term is unconstitutional. But Katz, in legal papers filed Monday by City Corporation Counsel Zachary Carter, noted she acted after a series of Daily News articles revealed extraordinary spending including the $392,000 annual salary of the library’s chief executive Thomas Galante.” (via NY Daily News)
