Taxpayers Doling Out Millions to Fund de Blasio’s ‘Special Assistants’


New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio over the past fiscal year has increased spending on his “special assistants” by $4.6 million, expanding their ranks by 13 percent and handing out raises to those already on staff.

These employees, who are vaguely titled as aides and whose salaries are taxpayer-funded, make up 40 percent of de Blasio’s staff, the New York Post reported Sunday night.

His staff’s collective salaries were bumped by 25 percent, up to $23.3 million, from fiscal year 2016, according to payroll records.
