New York Officials Defend Mccartney's Girlfriend

New York City public officials are defending SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY's girlfriend NANCY SHEVELL amid allegations she has abandoned her responsibilities as a transport boardmember to focus on her high-profile romance.
Shevell is among 16 unpaid members appointed by the state governor to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), the agency that oversees subways and buses for the city's eight million commuters.
After missing a series of top-level meetings, she has sparked an outcry among city leaders, who fear she's spending more time with her Beatle boyfriend of 18 months than doing her job.
According to MTA meeting minutes, Shevell has missed four full board meetings - more than any other voting member - since January 2008. She also skipped another committee meeting held to approve a controversial fare increase last month (Mar09) - on the same day she was snapped walking the red carpet with MCCartney at an event in London.
However, MTA officials insist Shevell is fulfilling her duties.
An MTA spokesperson says, "MTA board members are volunteers who serve without compensation and spend countless hours each month attending meetings and analysing background materials. Nancy Shevell has been an active board member since her appointment in 2001."

This aren´t music news. The MTA defend their unpaid work, they aren´t defending but politely critizising the slacker, well, the title is one interpretation. The married Nancy Shevell-Blakeman, who was appointed the board in 2001 by former Governor Pataki (her ex-husband's friend), has the worst attendance of any voting board member [since early 2008]. She missed four full board meetings, more than any voting member since January 2008, attended one Finance Committee meeting in the past year, and has 26 absences total. Gene Russianoff, a transit advocate, says "It is significant. The whole point of the board is to be a check and balance on the MTA's staff work. You've got to be physically present to do that." And if they can't show up, "they should resign."…"I would give her higher marks than average, when she exercises her responsibilities," he said, "but you know, does she have the time?" Instead, on March 23, she was at a London movie premiere on one arm hanging on her holiday-house neighbor Paul McCartney, whom she is phoning and running behind since her adultery, an one-night-stand in 2007. Her absence led City Council Transportation Committee Chair John Liu to surmise she "does not belong on the MTA board... I don't see how you go to a show when an important vote that will impact millions of people is taking place." If you are a dirty adulteress and operating outside the rules and there are nicer correct ladies…, well such a woman gives her best making people in UK believe she would be a “New Yorker socialite”. But "Nobody knew who she was," said Hamptons scene chronicler Steven Gaines, the co-author of "The Love You Make: An Insider's Story of The Beatles." ''She's like 25,000 other accomplished women out here in the Hamptons." The botox “beauty”-fake is known as “Paul McCartney´s latest bitch”, “who knows how to behave in the bedroom”, and Paul had his trousers zip down arriving with her... For whom such a one is a classy lady, please?
