I understand Silicon Valley is a unique expensive area. I will give you that. However, I do not understand in the worst economic times since the Great Depression, why are our local govts handing out $300,000 salaries? EVERYONE needs to do their share for society. Can't he be paid half that ($150,000) and still feel "well-paid" for this local area. I was told the "poverty level" in Silicon Valley is around $60,000/year. He still is well above that!!! Come on people. The local taxpayers are struggling.
