This letter writer in today's Buffalo News raises some serious questions about the political hacks at the New York State Thruway Authority...
More Questions remain on Thruway Authority
Now that the Thruway Authority spokesmen have answered many of the questions about the recent storm, perhaps we should ask them to answer some additional questions. How many members are there?Who are they? What qualifications are required?Who appointed them?How much do they get paid?How often do they meet?How long is their term of service?
Perhaps in this difficult economy, we should ask these questions of every board, commission and agency at the local, county and state level. I suspect that many of these appointees are simply part of the “business as usual, payoffs and good-ole boy network.”
