Still no comment from the RIOC Board of Directors on the governance issues raised by the August 2014 NY State Inspector General's Report detailing criminal conduct, corruption, kickbacks and nepotism by RIOC staff during prior administrations. Also, there has been no comment from RIOC Board Of Directors either on the NY State Inspector General's August 7 letter to RIOC President Charlene Indelicato regarding the Public Safety Department.

Does the RIOC Board of Directors not think Roosevelt Island residents, as well as the State Of New York, deserve an explanation how such corrupt practices detailed in the Inspector General's report could have occurred while they were monitoring and overseeing RIOC?

An audio web cast of the Governance Committee meeting will be made available soon thereafter.
