Governor Andrew Cuomo will enjoy a fluffy $25,000 pay raise due to the stress he undertook following the coronavirus infestation that ravaged his city and ultimately unleashing lawlessness throughout the mean streets of New York, Your Content has learned.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo will be getting a $25,000 pay raise in January 2021, as the state faces a massive $63 billion budget deficit owed to revenue losses tied to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We understand the potential for significant budget cuts may be necessary at the state executive level as well if the federal government does not enact additional funding to address the economic hardship caused by COVID-19,” the panel wrote in a new report released Monday evening.

Cuomo’s salary will jump from $225,000 to $250,000 on Jan. 1, 2021 — making him the highest paid governor in the nation, reports the New York Post.

The panel is made up of seven members appointed by Cuomo, members of the state Legislature, and the state’s chief judge, Janet DiFiore. 

It held two meetings in the last two months to discuss potential salary increases for state officials. During both meetings, members of the commission appeared to be united in their decision to keep salaries for state officials stagnant this year. 

Barring action from the Legislature compelling the commission to consider raises in the interim, the commission will not take up the matter of salary increases again until 2023, reports Rochester City Newspaper.

  1. One thing is always that one of the most prevalent incentives for applying your credit card is a cash-back or even rebate offer. Generally, you’ll have access to 1-5 back on various purchases. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1 again on most acquisitions, and 5 in return on buying made using convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’.

  2. I believe that avoiding refined foods will be the first step to be able to lose weight. They may taste good, but packaged foods contain very little vitamins and minerals, making you try to eat more in order to have enough vigor to get over the day. In case you are constantly feeding on these foods, transitioning to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more electricity while eating less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

  3. One more thing. I think that there are lots of travel insurance websites of reputable companies that allow you enter your holiday details to get you the rates. You can also purchase this international holiday insurance policy on internet by using your credit card. All that you should do is always to enter the travel specifics and you can see the plans side-by-side. Only find the system that suits your financial allowance and needs after which it use your bank credit card to buy the item. Travel insurance online is a good way to search for a respected company with regard to international holiday insurance. Thanks for giving your ideas.
