    California Official's $800,000 Salary in City of 38,000 Triggers Protests

    It was the first council meeting since the Los Angeles Times reported July 15 that Chief Administrative Officer Robert Rizzo earns $787,637 -- with annual 12 percent raises -- and that Bell pays its police chief $457,000, more than Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck makes in a city of 3.8 million people. Bell council members earn almost $100,000 for part-time work.

    Man. Where do I sign up for one of those gigs?

    I'm sure this has nothing to do with California's money problems

    For tax payer funded servants they sure making way more than what any servant should be paid.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    The first place you sign up is as a Democrat party member.
    Next get yourself appointed by a local government that is majority Democrat run.
    Next, well you may have to bare or kiss an a$$ or three.

    If you think this is bad, you should take a look at how Illinois is run?

    So what would you do about this? I would do absolutely nothing about it. It's the nature of the marketplace. The small town wanted a good administrator and police chief, and were willing to pay for it. Also, if it doesn't work out, then I am sure the voters of the town will show their displeasure with their vote. If they vote to keep it as it is, it is their business, not that of anybody else.

    Tribune Watchdog: Bellwood boss' big salary questioned - Chicago Breaking News

    Bellwood, IL city manager makes $472,000. Bellwood has a population of 20,000. The demographics on the city show that 15% of the residents are on disability. Whaaaat???? (On both counts)

    Guess that explains why Illinois is #2 behind California in fiscal irresponsibility.
