Well, screw that.
Here's my take:
- The reason I disagree with these three is they're not speaking out of the best interests of the people: they're speaking for the best interests of themselves.
Like teachers, they knew what the job paid when they took it. If it didn't pay enough, then they should go look for work elsewhere.
Kimsey, who should be recalled over his multiple violations of the law with his voter pamphlet hijinks, isn't lacking respect because he's not making even more than the $100K he's being paid. Far from it.
If these three don't like the pay, then certainly they can feel free to resign.
I will never vote for any of them anyway.
Happens all the time in, say, professional sports where their players are frequently paid much more than their coaches or general manager.
