Albany Pay Recommendations Are Out in the Open

    A committe on pay for state elected officials is out and the responses will be predictable. How is this for a proposal.
    Pay a Member of Assembly or Senator one-half the average of the salaries of school superintendents in their district. No one objects to their pay, and I don't think a lawmaker would get blowback for being paid half of that.

Would you have worked for half of the average of all city mayors in New York ? I think not.

Couldn't help it could you? Supers are overpaid, but, unlike our political friends, they have REAL responsibilities. Staffing, payroll, budgets, facilities, you know, real supervisory issues. Unlike our political friends who have no budgets to meet, deadlines, worry 75% of the time about how to re-elected, how to manage three offices of which they are at 5% of the time, etc. But your right, our political friends are underpaid, save for per diem, meal money, gas money, war chests, special interests. They deserve a raise, these poor hard working politicians...but remember, it's education's fault.

Only thing that will save us is term limits

So, like they earned it, right ... but you know what? The same old crew will win reelection ... 95% do or maybe a bit higher ... democracy in action, eh? Yeah, right.
