Prepare to be pissed, ye Burghers.
Internal Revenue Service records show that William W. Millar received $348,353 in salary and $110,183 in deferred compensation in 2004 as president/chief executive officer of the Washington, D.C.-based American Public Transportation Association. At the same time, the Port Authority of Allegheny County sent him a $5,258 monthly pension check and paid for his health, vision, dental and prescription insurance even though he left as authority CEO more than a decade ago.
The financially troubled transit agency’s highest pension recipient, by far, is Paul Skoutelas, 53, another former CEO, who is collecting $8,566 a month.
So when transit cuts force you to catch a bus 45 minutes earlier than you would like, then transfer to two other buses just to get your hot ass downtown for work, I hope you’ll be able to take some deep breaths and maybe count to a million so that the boiling anger in your head doesn’t blow out your eardrums.
Good luck with that.
