New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray, employs at least six staffers whose salaries are paid by taxpayers but are not listed on her official staff roster.
The city’s first lady’s office officially includes eight staffers who all together receive a collective $1.1 million in salaries, The City reported. However, McCray’s staff numbered a total of 15 people for much of this year, but the recent departure of a staff member brought the total down to 14 people.
The unlisted staffers include several who make six-figure salaries, including communications advisor Felicia Lee, whose $140,000 salary is paid by New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and director of policy Grace Choi, who makes $130,000 paid by the city’s Department of Social Services. A social media manager whose salary is paid by the city’s Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications, as well as two other low-level staffers paid by the mayor’s office, were also not listed on McCray’s official staff roster.
