I hope that get the raise. They actually deserve much more.
I understand that being on City Council takes many, many hours.

While I usually disagree with the majority of City Council Members on their views, I respect the hard work that their job entails.

Spoken like a true politician, or should I say lawyer, or worse. Is there a worse?

About $65,000 for 7 members yearly salery to manage a almost 1/4 of a billion dollar city budget is chicken feed. At 10 times that it would be cheap.
Part time help at less than minimum wage and we get what we have gotten.

I cannot disagree with what you say. They do deserve more pay.

However, I will see if Milk Pail stays in San Antonio with shared parking. I will vote that way. If YES, Milk Pail is there in Nov, I will vote YES, if NO, Milk Pail is not there, I will vote NO.

Seems easy to me. I have been very supportive. They need to do the RIGHT THING.

Sure they should have their income adjusted. As long as they can adjust the minimum wage in Mountain View to reflect the cost of living here. Hopefully they can agree that all working people deserve the "adjustment" they deserve!
