State Senator Lost Position, but Not Perks

Date: August 7, 2004
Author: Jonathan P. Hicks
QUOTE: Â…because of what was considered less than professional behavior, State Senator Ada L. Smith of Queens had been removed from a prominent leadership postÂ… she would keep her $16,500 stipend, along with a car that is paid for by the state.

ABSTRACT: The New York State legislature demoted a Democratic member from a leadership position, due to a series of alleged unprofessional incidents, but didn't strip her of several perks of her former position.
