Career Coach Chick

A story in this morning's Daily News talks about an event City Controller Laura Chick held to show people - especially women and minorities - how they can become City Commissioners. For some time now Chick has been chiding Mayor Poopy about his lack of appointments of women and minorities to City Commissions.

Hey Laura - tell them this - the surefire way to get on a commission - WRITE A CHECK! Ha Ha! Or wait for a new mayor to be elected.

When Laura Chick got to select someone for the Ethics Commission she picked neither a woman NOR a minority. In fact, she picked a white male westsider. Among her own staff, seems Chick only employs one woman at the executive level - Miriam Jaffe. When faced with the choice of supporting a replacement for Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski who ends her term in June 2005, again she's skipped over two highly qualified women who also happen to be minorities for another white male insider. Thanks for the lesson on inclusion, Laura. Now try to practice it!

I agree. I think Laura is doing this to dick with Jimmy. She is far more suited to and will get much more traction with exposing corruption and waste.

When Chick was a councilmember approving all those men and non-minority commissioners she never did anything. She could of introduced a motion adopting a council policy that commission appointments would be returned to the Mayor if they didn't have diversity.

Chick needs to do her job and stop grand-standing.

Hey, don't pick on Miriam Jaffe. She is so much woman, that others don't want to apply for a positions in the controller's office and compete with her good looks and intelligence. Men however are flocking to the controllers office for jobs just to be near this attractive and bright AND 'available' hot number !!!
