Here’s the latest on the Queens Library/Thomas Galante situation in NYC.
For background on this story, see these two infoDOCKET posts from last week.
- Queens Library Chairman and CEO Testifies at NYC City Council Hearing
- New York City: Comptroller Scott Stringer To Audit NYC’s Three Library Systems (Roundup)
These posts include multiple reports along with a link to a video of the testimony Galante shared with a NY City Council committee last week.
Now, a quick update.
Yesterday, the NY Daily News reported that along with his job as Director of the Queens Library, Thomas Galante has a second job as a business consult for Long Island local school district.
During a 22 month period Galante’s ”side” job (which is ongoing) paid him $287,000 (about $150 hr/22 hours per week).
This is in addition to his $392,000 job as director of the Queens Library.
That was yesterday.
