Dear Editor,

I attended Mayor Bill de Blasio's Briarwood Town Hall meeting on November 30 and was impressed by his grasp of details and delivery of good news.

He announced an $800,000 allocation for an outdoor classroom in Willow Lake Park, adding to the nearly $2 million secured by Councilman Rory Lancman.

But I wasn't able to ask him a question, so I'll do it now. Why should we pay $13 million in legal fees for the mayor and his staff when federal and state prosecutors filed no charges against them after major investigations?

New York City's Law Department is supposed to handle the mayor's legal affairs relating to his job. Taxpayers dollars shouldn't go to lawyers getting $900 an hour.

Comptroller Scott Stringer has final approval over this expenditure. If he okays

it, taxpayers must file a class action lawsuit to prevent this waste of our money.
