Higher Pay for Hacks
The Huntsville Times endorses the idea that the Mayor and City Councilors need big raises. In some case up to 50% or so. There argument is that the higher salaries are needed to attract better politicians when the current ones leave. I think it is meant to be a compliment. Since the incumbents are showing no signs of leaving, and seemed happy with their current pay, I am not sure who they are trying to attract. Besides I am sure a higher pay just gets you a higher order of hack running for office.
