We have just had all the bridge tolls increase, car registration, and LIRR fare incresa. and what do the idiots incharge do???
They give a nobody political appointment a $50,000 raise before he even walks in the door!
We need a federal investigation on all this corruption in government!!!
Its business as usual!!

In the city you ride the train from Queens to upper Manhattan for $2.00.
On Long Island the same ride is $16.00
How the MTA dumped this mess on Long Islanders is beyond common sense, its called corruption, big time.
As bad as the MTA is, they gave this new guy a $50,000 raise bringing his salary to $350,000 plus $5,000 housing expense.What an incompetent,corupt system!
Has anybody heard from a politician yet besides a burp from a free meal??

GOVERNOR, Can you investigate this diaster of an entity in government and correct this mess of an agency?
Can you locate that New York Stae Inspector General, Miss"whats her name" to investigate the mismanagement of this agency and respond to the working class of taxpayers in New York who are being robbed and extorted of hard earned money to keep this mismanaged agency operating and its CEO lavishly paid... as well as the agency telephone directory full of numerous patronage appointees earning well over $100,000 that do nothing most of the day but look out a window to see what the workers are doing and review an eatery menu and drink coffee or play with their blackberry phones or computers all day?

We were hoping Cuomo would clean this mess but it looks to big for even him.
We are charged tolls galore and as a homeowner why are we supporting so many political patronage jobs at the MTA. Does anybody really care?
15 bucks to cross a major bridge built and paid for by taxpayers a hundred ti,es over....what a disgrace !

All this noted important whistleblowing, and not one whistle blowing matter has been addressed.
I just went to visit family and took the Troggs Neck Bridge. I was charged $7.50 each way. My trip cost $15.00 just to cross the bridge.
This is insane government.
When will this dysfunctioal means of addressing poor management be addressed!!!
Its an outrage and the taxpayers are fed up!
Do something !!!!!

GOV Cuomo, turn back the fees and tolls. Its $7.50 to cross a bridge we payed for it since it was built 50 times over. We need Robin Hood !!!!
