Young, African-American professional, well educated.
B.S. in Management, with a major in Accounting from Tulane University.
Eight year private sector banking, with management experience in auditing, financial and regulatory accounting, and controller duties. Also a Certified Public Accountant.
Sounds quite impressive.
And sounds like a well qualified professional who would be making a great living in the private sector, contributing to the City of Miami economy.
But Larry Spring is not in the private sector world, since 2003 he has been a public employee.
So why would someone with this much "talent" not be making money in the "real world" and instead be in the public sector?
The same question applies to "new media mogul" Will Plasencia, recently hired by our friend Chairman Marc David Sarnoff.
Larry and Will know that life in the Miami private sector will NEVER be better than in the public sector.
It's part of our City's "Third World" charm bitches!
Take Larry for instance:
$171,000 base salary, plus the car and phone allowance.
The six weeks paid vacation and the six weeks paid sick leave.
And all this for relatively low pressure.
With all the financial shenanigans going on at City Hall, any C.P.A. would have lost their license by now.
But not Larry.
He and Will know they'll never find a job like this anywhere.
Which is why Larry will do ANYTHING to keep his job.
And working for the city means Larry can keep his "OTHER" job.
Oh, you didn't know Larry has a side business?
It's not his fault, most high paid City bureaucrats have side businesses too...
