From the Almanac:
"Mr. Rojas will start Aug. 2, at a salary of $204,000 a year -- a 25 percent increase over the $163,233 a year former manager David Boesch was making"
Guess what folks: Mr. Rojas is going to be paid MORE than any other state offical, except Governor Schwarzenegger, and he's almost at that level - Arnold gets paid $212k. See:
And what the heck is going on with giving a 25% increase to the "new guy" before he even serves one day?
Guess where your utility tax money is going??? At this rate, they'll have to bump it back up to the maximum just to pay for all this free-spending that the new council is doing! Unlike Nancy Reagan, they can't seem to "just say no".
Somehow we've managed to go from one extreme to another in councils - from dumb to dumber! I say recall the Mayor and put in the guy who just missed out by a few votes last November - he couldn't do any worse!
