Retirement Party for Head of NY FBI Cost $150 Per Person: “Even for NY Prices That’s Wholly Crap”

The cost for attending the September retirement party of Janice Fedarcyk, who just stepped down as head of the New York FBI, isn’t so cheap: $150.

Some think that’s excessive for a party for the  assistant director in charge  (ADIC) of the New York office.

“Everybody said ‘wholly crap,'” one agent told ticklethewire.com. “Even for N.Y. prices, that’s wholly crap.”

Another person said: “The event costs $150. That’s the most expensive retirement dinner I have ever seen. Given the tough economic times and lack of payraises for federal workers the last two years, this is outrageous. Either ADIC Fedarcyk or whoever is planning this is out of touch with reality.”

The event is set for Sept. 6 at a hall in Manhattan.

The $150 includes cocktails and  hors d’oeuvres from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. followed by a sit-down dinner.

FBI retirement parties are usually about a third of that cost if not less.

The N.Y. FBI office had not yet responded for comment on Monday.
