Who Says Government Jobs Don’t Pay?

The Sun today reported on the high salaries of members of the executive chamber in the Paterson administration, noting that 62 of the 176 staffers in the executive chamber have a salary of at least $100,000.

Well, we have one to add outside the chamber that caught our eye: Drew Warshaw, the 27-year-old new chief of staff to Port Authority executive director Chris Ward, takes in $168,012 annually. The previous Port Authority director, Tony Shorris, didn’t have anyone with the title of chief of staff, but his "special executive assistant," Andy Rachlin, took in $99,000 a year.

Mr. Warshaw served as an aide in the Spitzer administration, working with Rich Baum, secretary to the Governor. Who Says Government Jobs Don’t Pay?
