Bernard Adams, a retired police officer, will oversee governmental affairs in his role as a deputy police commissioner with the NYPD, the New York Post reported. The job comes with a salary of around $240,000, The Daily Beast said.
He most recently worked as assistant director of operations for parking at the medical campus of Virginia Commonwealth University, according to his LinkedIn, after retiring from the NYPD in 2006. He left the police department after 20 years of service, the Daily Mail reported.
“New Yorkers expect that public servants are hired based on their unique qualifications and not because they are the mayor’s brother,” said Susan Lerner, the executive director of government watchdog Common Cause New York, in an email to the Daily News.
“It is unclear whether a waiver from the Conflict of Interest Board would be required for this appointment,” she added. “Even with a waiver, the appointment of the Mayor’s close relative does not inspire public confidence.”
Interesting times, indeed.
