Your money, Roosevelt Island: RIOC quietly seeks a new $190K Vice President

A new $190K vice president sought by RIOC, but you didn’t hear about it? You’re not supposed to because it’s another stealth job, and Roosevelt Islanders are not welcome.

By David Stone

Roosevelt Island Daily News

If you dig deep, you might find the ad for RIOC’s new $190K vice president, but if you live here, it’s not for you.

Our friends at the Roosevelt Islander accept ads, and so do we here at The Daily.

In fact, if RIOC wanted you to know about the opening, floating it in one of their alerts is easy peasy.

But they don’t want you knowing about it, and here’s why:

Although RIOC’s limp board of directors is responsible for hiring and firing, Governor Cuomo’s Albany minion decide who gets exec jobs here. And the board? Weak-kneed enablers always.

About the new $190K vice president…

To be honest, the new hire for Vice President of Operations/COO might have to settle for as little as $175K per year, but generous benefits may help him or her scrape by.

How about these…?

“…free health, dental and vision coverage for you and your family (if applicable), paid holidays, floating holidays, sick, personal, and vacation days, commuter benefits, flexible spending accounts, retirement plans, and exciting work environment with a beautiful view of Manhattan and Long Island City.”

That’s right: Free health insurance, including dental and vision, for your whole family.

And a beautiful view of Manhattan and Long Island City as a benefit? But not a word about the Island, the parks, the history…?

But get this one, Roosevelt Islanders: “…commuter benefits…” Never heard of ’em, but it doesn’t take a genius…

Still got enough stomach for a laugh?

Some fun quotes:

With a focus on innovative and environmentally friendly solutions, RIOC is committed to providing services that enhance the island’s residential community. 

…And next to last in a list of 10 job responsibilities…

Meet with local residents, local community groups, NYC and NYS agencies and other stakeholders to exchange information and review current or proposed programs, initiatives, and projects.

That’s the last word leaking out of the bunker, anyway.
