Mayor Bloomberg spends $245,000 on three chefs

New York - When Mayor Bloomberg came into office there was just one executive cook at Gracie Mansion to make the VIP feasts. Today there are three - costing  taxpayers a whopping $245,000 this year. And despite the big spending cuts the mayor has ordered across every city agency, too many cooks won’t be spoiling the broth at the city-owned mansion.  His longest-serving man in the kitchen, Feliberto Estevez, picks up $97,000. His pastry chef Jerry Montanez  who was hired in 2007 is paid $68,000 while Jose Velazquez is on $80,000 after getting a $10,000 pay rise last July. Last autumn, there were cutbacks in the police, fire and schools and there are more job losses to come
