Hmmm...$225k in pay for the boss who runs a conservency that pays out about $550k a year to have the work done. Not bad. It's an even greater bargain when you consider the fact that the agency run by this nitwit spent $584k on fund raising, to raise $554k in donated funds. For this she got a $25k bonus. If that doesn't scream gubmit performance and efficiency for you, nothing will. Email puts Greenway on hot seat Chiefâ€™s message reveals strategy behind salary info By Erin Smith Wednesday, January 25, 2012 - Updated 45 minutes ago E-mail Print (199) Comments Text size Share An errant email sent to a Herald reporter probing six-figure salaries and hefty bonuses at the Rose Kennedy Greenway shows the director of the taxpayer-funded nonprofit sought public relations advice on whether to â€śignore,â€ť â€śwrite her (the reporter) now,â€ť or â€śrespond after deadline later tonightâ€ť with information about her actual pay. Email puts Greenway on hot seat - BostonHerald.com The Herald review of the conservancy, which oversees the 15-acre downtown park, found: â€˘ Brennan has racked up a total of $160,000 in executive bonuses since 2006. They have bumped her total compensation as high as $225,000 annually. â€˘ The conservancy, which originally was formed to maintain the Greenway without public funding, has received more than $15 million in state funds since 2005, including more than $2.5 million for last yearâ€™s $4.7 million budget. â€˘ The Greenwayâ€™s maintenance costs ran to more than $300,000 per acre last year. By contrast, it costs about $50,300 per acre to maintain New York Cityâ€™s Central Park, which also is run by a conservancy. â€˘ The conservancy spent more on fund-raising â€” $584,000 â€” than the $554,000 the group took in through cash donations and fund-raisers in fiscal 2010. Conservancy officials, who said the poor economy affected donations, still awarded Brennan $25,000 annual bonuses in both 2009 and 2010. â€˘ At least two other conservancy employees have six-figure salaries â€” on a staff of 29 full and part-timers, plus nine paid â€śapprentices,â€ť for a total $1.8 million payroll. Contractors perform maintenance for about $514,000 annually.
