Clean up the NFTA, starting at the top
Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s annual salary is $179,000 to run the entire state of New York, while Kim Minkel receives an annual salary of $200,000 for just running the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority.
In the meantime, 1,100 of the employees who work below her have not seen a raise in eight years. The NFTA needs to be cleaned up, starting from Minkel down. The sooner the better.
