Letter: Council pay raises were self-serving
City council pay raises were self serving.
Our mayor and city council members, with the exception of Mr. Palmer and Mr. Campion, saw fit to give themselves a pay increase -- not the next council after an election. How noble!
An example for other businesses such as IBM, 3M, Mayo, Olmsted Group, etc., to do away with employee reviews, business plans etc., and let employees set their own salaries. Perhaps even do away with the HR departments.
Perhaps Mayor Norton can now afford do ALL her grocery shopping at a Kwik Trip, as she proclaimed was possible when voting for a zoning change along 26th Street Northeast.
This council needs to "wake up and smell the roses," so to speak, or perhaps it is the voter that needs to do that as the next election comes along.
