NYC Lawmakers Now Paid $148,000

       The fifty members of the NYC City Council are now paid $148,000 a year , up from $112,500. That's why in the City, these are more coveted spots than an Assembly or Senate seat. 
        Restrictions on outside income are also being imposed. Council members are elected by district. Locally our Council members are paid 13 and change, and their last raise was the 3% hike enacted last summer.

Does anyone blame them? This is ALL 0bamas fault. No matter what the facts show... ;)

That seems like a small price to pay for the service.
Just think, if the job paid any less, then they might not come up with great ideas and laws, such as limiting the size of soda cups.

The bigger question is how much does it pay after they leave the office? Pensions and permanent healthcare should go with it as a minimum.

They'd be better off getting a "Leadership" position at Samaritan.

For once I somewhat agree with <>?::V. This is our fault. We have allowed ourselves to be programmed to vote party line. This makes for corruption in areas where there really is no philosophical contest. NYC, the everlasting anus of our state.
