We do not have investigative journalism here in NYC so I can't get the price tag on 311 and on top of that massive price how much we paid Gartner Group and other consultants for 311 which is not worth it's weight in cold let alone what ever we paid.
We did pay mayor Bloomberg's daughter a dollar for her help on 311 and the head of doitt at the time was invited to her wedding and left to become a lobbyist making big bucks and some of that money on contractors that in my opinion were over billing us The People of NYC.
Actually he and his co-worker DOITT weren't aware we were being over billed so they just happen to want a cut of the action as lobbyists? Nice work if you can get it considering NYC's staggeringly high unemployment rate under mayor Bloomberg -- the man that his puppet Christine Quinn said only Mike can help us with the economy during these tough times as Quinn moved into a million dollar plus condo we hear she got at a special price and became an owner of a 2nd home in New Jersey. Nice timing huh?
Christine Quinn pushed through the largest abuse of tax payer money ever in the history of NYC -- starting with the one mega crime exposed CityTime -- yes -- Christine Quinn brushed aside two investigations brought by Tish James to aid SAIC in their continued compulsion to over bill us for a flawed pay roll system that is destined for the dumpster. Interesting but Rudy threw out a payroll system that worked called AutoTime. Than surprise his deputy mayors emerged as lobbyists for SAIC who I believe was stealing in my opinion before Gerard Denault was ever hired!
ECTP 911 Tech System even bigger crime than CityTime. So far John Liu thinks about 188 million dollars stolen aka over billed by Hewlett Packard but folks we went over budget 1 billion + dollars and you cannot even text 911 let alone hope that the system works including years of generating duplicate calls to tech software flatlined oops.
I believe ECTP 911 tech system bigger crime than citytime but Cy Vance has not acted on John Liu's heroic request for a criminal investigation in to 911 requested May 2012...yes that was before 2 tech titanics ECTP 911 and 311 collapsed during Hurricane Sandy.
I am sure CityTime did not work either and most city workers used a pencil to fix their messed up schedules from Hurricane Sandy not news because the media moguls that employee investigative journalism kill their work or pull strings to protect Mike Bloomberg.
Without protection Mike Bloomberg and Christine Quinn would be forced to resign. Bill Thompson could have shut down CityTime crime and he did not so his career would be over.
Mysteriously I am the only one calling for a criminal investigation into ECTP 911 every day. Our lives are at risk in my opinion and way more than 200 million tax dollars stolen and abused.
