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 :D

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.
