Pay and pinches

May 12, 2009 

I just about lost my dinner when reading of a $10,000 pay increase for Raleigh City Manager Russell Allen. What are our city leaders thinking when times are so tough? My guess is that Allen will not feel the pinch when paying his upcoming increased water bill.

I am outraged and aim to find out which council members voted yea.
