The Wages of Bloomberg

We’re just back from the first campaign finance briefing at Mike‘s spiffy new headquarters off Times Square, where we noticed a diverse bunch of volunteers and some clear Kevin Sheekey touches. Among our favorites were the five clocks along one wall, each showing the time in a different key location: Brooklyn, the Bronx, Staten Island, Manhattan, and Queens.

Also decorating the place were several familiar Democratic faces who, it turns out, are being quite well compensated for switching teams this year.

Here are the salaries of Mike’s top political operatives, on an annual basis:

Kevin Sheekey: $250,008
Terrance Tolbert (ex-Keith Wright aide): $180,000
Stu Loeser (ex-Schumer): $144,000
Patrick Brennan (ex-1199): $144,000 The Wages of Bloomberg
