Marc Sarnoff Has New Office Digs
On his blog, The Crespo-Gram Report, the acerbic watchdog chronicles his trip down to Sarnoff's new digs this past Monday. Crespo notes that Sarnoff is renting space from the law firm of Allen and Solowsky, which serves as an outside legal counsel for the Downtown Development Authority, where Sarnoff is chairman. Crespo claims Sarnoff sharing an office with Allen and Solowsky "raises a conflict of interest question about the chairman of the DDA board of directors now practicing law in the offices of the DDA's outside counsel."
Crespo also chides Sarnoff for hogging a special street parking spot in front of his new office building. The space, usually reserved for city officials on city business, now has a sign that reads: "Reserved: City Commissioner Only/Tow-Away."
"In short, he abuses the power of his office by parking in a space that should only be used on official business," Crespo wrote. Sarnoff could not immediately be reached for comment.
