Great, now we have city staff recommending how much taxpayers should pay elected representatives.

First, overseeing a city the size of White Rock is much like overseeing a hotdog stand. Therefore they should, in my estimation, be paid accordingly.

The solution is this; have council strike a task force to investigate and come back with an informed recommendation.

Oh wait, one council tried that and the task force came back with a recommendation that they deserved minimal pay increase – sorta blew up in their faces.

Next thing you know, council passed a bylaw and gave themselves a raise anyway.

I really am getting tired of politicians getting carried away with their own self importance.
