    The gov't sure is generous with our money. Sickening, morally bankrupt, elitist attitude. Welcome to Illinois, the leftie utopia.

    How does a mid-level manager rise to such lofty heights?

    Chicago's new transit chief got sweet pension deal


    [​IMG]

    "The three-member supplemental retirement plan board that made that decision included Theresa Mintle, a CTA official who would go on to become Emanuel’s first chief of staff. Mintle’s cousin — former Mayor Richard M. Daley — appointed Carter’s late father, an obstetrician, in 1990 to an unpaid seat on the Illinois Medical District Commission, a governmental agency that oversees development within 560 acres on the Near West Side near the University of Illinois at Chicago."

    "CTA spokesman Brian Steele says Mintle and the board didn’t give Carter any special treatment."

    We may need someone like Scott Walker to reign in these union pensions.

    "Even as Carter’s annual income from his CTA pension and federal salary topped $280,000, court records show the Hyde Park condominium he and his wife owned went into foreclosure in 2013. A judge dismissed the case earlier this year after the Carters agreed to sell the condo."

    I bet Scott walker won't be living in the poor house any time soon.
    Our new republican governor's wife who holds no public office has an assistant that gets paid 100,000 tax payer dollars a year.
    The term "leftie utopia" is a little off the mark when talking about people in public office. The graft is equally spread around.

    I'm discussing Il in general and this scum in particular. We're not arguing, but if you invoke another party, pol (I didnt name one) to mitigate this scam, I won.

    That's all anybody does. My argument has always been that ALL these people are suspect. My invoking another party isn't any different than you using the term "leftie utopia". Anybody who thinks that one side is any more honest than the other is fooling themselves.

    Working for the Feds, I see this all the time. I'll meet people 3 pay grades above me and then get asked to "help them along" to do shit that they should have known from Day 1. Disgusting. There is definitely no discrimination against people of color in Govt.

    I see it more as a Union problem that allowed people to retire very young, collect almost full pay and then go on to another taxpayer paid job. Scott Walker is the only one who had had the balls to take on the Unions in Wisconsin.

    i was working a job through city code enforcement to prep for some variance approvals when the city goverment changed from white republican to black democrat. the guy had been working with was "re-assigned" and a young black female put in his job. at one point in our initial meeting she said to me - and I quote - "Now its our turn to get ours". She was right it turns out. we had to add 1000' of sidewalk and drainage improvements not even related to our job because the city councilman for that district had made a campaign promise and we wouldnt get his approval otherwise.

    It ok to think that just because you finished last, you deserve a teiphy
    and she's running the whole damn thing.

    Remember that month or so when she got really sick and couldn't work? Obamas administration went to absolute shit. Jarrett is the ouppetmasters

    By the looks of the positions, he's always been in a management or staff role. Probably not a union pension.
