Scandals always hit NYC mayors in their 3rd term (CityTime) Maybe City Unions have a point about not using outside contractors.


It always seems the projects that are supposed to save the city money, or increase city employee productivity are the ones that end up in major scandal.

And these corruption scandals always seem to happen to NYC mayors in their third term.

This scam, known as CityTime — was supposed to save money by consolidating and automating hours clocked by city workers — but just the opposite happened. Skyrocketing cost overruns went from an initially budget in the range of $63 million when it was launched in 1998.
