Mike McMahon: King of the Garbage Cans

My representative in the City Council, and most likely Staten Island’s next Borough President: Political garbage

The fancy receptacles look nicer, and their smaller openings deter people from dumping household garbage. They may even deter rats. But they cost $400 apiece, which is far more than the Sanitation Department wants to spend.

Elected officials know no such restraint. Blessed with the ability to tap into slush funds, they have been giving the department extra money to replace standard baskets in their nabes with the expensive containers. The number of receptacles stays the same at four times the price.

Hargrove, 57, will manage the Liberal BeeJays, one of the nation’s most successful summer teams for college-age players in Liberal, Kan., about 50 miles from where he grew up in Perryton, Texas.
