MV council wants $18k/year

"City council members stopped just short of putting a proposal on the June ballot to triple their salaries, but said they plan to come back with a similar plan in November that they hope is more likely to get voter support..."

The press has had a field day with this story. Judging from the multiple articles and editorials in both the Voice and the Daily (here's an earlier one), it would seem to be the biggest story in the city right now, at least as far as government is concerned. Just one little problem, while I've received 50 letters about the Sports Page not being able to get an entertainment permit, I haven't seen a single one about this topic.

In the words of another reporter, "It doesn't mean nobody cares. It means nobody crazy cares."

Even so, it makes me wonder if Don Letcher (a.k.a. "the guy with the house") is okay. I haven't seen him around for weeks.
