Re: Ex-manager knocks job’s new wages, Sept. 13.

I, too, am in shock concerning a salary of $200,000 per year. How can anyone spend $17,000 per month?

(Editor’s note: White Rock city manager Peggy Clark’s remuneration for 2010 was $194,535, including car allowance, expenses, unused vacation, banked time, benefits and salary.)

May I remind you that we senior citizens who fought for and helped build Canada are eking out an existence with $1,500 per month.

May I also ask you to consider that a small town in Nova Scotia recently went broke. There is no money for anyone there working for local government, except for the firehall.

If our leaders cannot lead us by taking less – and setting an example – then we are all doomed.

Greece is bankrupt, now maybe Italy.

The monetary system is in danger of collapsing, and if this happens, you better order your bars and steel shutters, because people will be looking for food to eat.

Thomas Mackay, White Rock
