Re: Politicians endorse bigger pay boost, Oct. 10.
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.
