The Issue: A metropolis report’s discovering that Mayor de Blasio and his household misused his NYPD safety element.

Our mayor has been misusing his safety element, utilizing it to run errands and shuttle different individuals round, and greater than $300,000 has been wasted (“Mayor’s security boss in DA sights,” Oct. 8).

Now he’s making excuses for it, even having a safety professional defend his actions. It is disgraceful, particularly after Gov. Andrew Cuomo was implicated in wrongdoing.

Even worse, Mayor de Blasio’s spouse, Chirlane McCray, was given $850 million for her Thrive program, which was by no means correctly accounted for.

With solely a month left in workplace, many will likely be glad to see him go.

The Department of Investigation’s hard-hitting report documenting huge de Blasio-family abuses of NYPD safety particulars exposes the First Family’s demand for perks.

That Dante de Blasio was chauffeured each to New Haven and to a post-college Brooklyn job reveals how informal corruption turns into ingrained.

That the taxpayers helped subsidize the mayor’s presidential bid, with no notion that the prices ought to have been reimbursed and reported below federal marketing campaign legislation, is according to a mayor who espouses political populism however is “willfully blind” to moral norms.

Political chutzpah, doable crimes and the mayor’s incapacity to settle for duty make a tragic ending to a mayoralty that each overpromised and underperformed.

While the remainder of New York City burns, in typical Democratic trend Mayor Putz spends mega {dollars} for his and his household’s safety, the price of which residents of New York should take in.

Many occasions over, the likes of the mayor in different substantial positions have misused their places of work.

Hired weapons defend these officers below the guise of “we are more important than you,” they usually don’t settle for being held accountable. Really? It’s properly previous time they pay their fair proportion.

​Apparently hypocrisy is aware of no limits when it comes to de Blasio and McCray.

Were these not the of us who had been advocating for the NYPD to be defunded?

Sure, so long as it didn’t influence the improper use of police assets for the household’s private and political functions.

The Issue: Reports that there are greater than 150,000 absentee college students on metropolis colleges’ rosters this 12 months.

I do know the place the absentee youngsters are (“ ‘Missing’ 150K children,” Oct. 10).

They’re both roaming the streets, taking pictures one another, or they’ve decamped to non-public colleges.

When I learn that the Department of Education budgets $42,000 per pupil per 12 months, I had to sigh.

My expertise with the DOE with my very own youngsters and now grandchildren is that the worth and high quality of the training supplied on no account justifies that price ticket.

This article states that principals are liable for discovering college students who’re enrolled however haven’t attended lessons by any means essential.

This is nothing new. Before I retired over a decade in the past, it was my duty to discover college students who had been lacking, as my faculty was funded based mostly on college students in attendance.

I’d make cellphone calls and home calls. Usually, I began with about 5 p.c of enrollment lacking and located about half of them.
