NYC: Mayor Eric Adams' Sister-In-Law Landed $150,000 City Government Gig

The administration of Eric Adams appointed the mayor’s sister-in-law Sharon Adams to a job at the city Department of Education in March, public records show — with a $150,000-a-year salary, more than double her prior pay as a school teacher in Virginia.

Sharon Adams joined the DOE on March 5 with the title “strategic initiative specialist,” less than a week after her husband, mayoral sibling Bernard Adams, ended his service with the city on Feb. 28.

On that same day, Sharon Adams left her position in the Richmond Public Schools system, a job that paid her under $73,000, according to a Richmond official.

Bernard Adams served as senior advisor for mayoral security for just over a year, earning a mere $1 per year despite an initial effort by the mayor to award his brother one of the highest salaries in city government.

The attempts to pay his brother first about $242,000 and then $210,000 were thwarted by city rules that bar public officials from using their positions to benefit close relatives, defined as spouses, domestic partners, children, parents and siblings.
