New Committee Heads
February 27th, 2009

The City Council’s committee leadership has been restructured since members Mike McMahon, Joe Addabbo and Hiram Monserrate moved on to higher office pastures.

These changes, which are selected by Council Speaker Christine Quinn, mean every member, except council members Mathieu Eugene and Liz Crowley, receive some sort of extra lulu (or stipend).

Eugene and Crowley are also the council’s newest members. Crowley joined in January and Eugene joined in May of 2007.

The changes are as follows:

Civil Service and Labor: Miguel Martinez (He had head up the council’s fire committee. His stipend of $10,000 remains the same.)

Fire and Criminal Justice Services: Jimmy Vacca (He had led the council’s senior centers subcommittee. His stipend increases from $4,000 to $10,000.)

Government Operations: Helen Sears (Had led women’s issues, which had the same stipend of $10,000.)

Sanitation and Solid Waste Management: Simcha Felder (Had government operations, and he will keep the same lulu of $10,000.)

Veterans: James Sanders (Had no chair previously, and is now awarded a $10,000 stipend.)

Women’s Issues: Darlene Mealy (Had no chair previously, and now gets a $10,000 lulu.)

Senior Centers: Melissa Mark Viverito (Had no chair and gets a subcommittee stipend of $4,000.)
