$60,000 a year? Are you freaking kidding me?

The five members of the Rosemead City Council cost city taxpayers over $320,000 last year. Nearly all of that is in salary, retirement (!) and benefits. That's nuts. Over $60,000 EACH! Take a look at the city budget. It's posted on the city website (the one Maggie Clark voted against creating). Pasting the address below should work.



I'm looking at pages 61, 62 and 66. Interesting.

A 30% Increase in spending for the City Council Members!

You're right--Page 62 shows they increased spending on themselves by more than 30% over the past two years! That's a true WTF moment. While they keep cutting jobs and services for everyone else, they keep padding their own bottom lines.
