It may seem like a bold act that the majority of our City Council members stood up to the state and said “no” to paying the prevailing wage for state government funded projects. However, my impression is that it seems wrong and possibly hypocritical.
Thank you for publishing my letter in regard to our state legislators giving themselves a 5.3% wage increase (Star-Observer, Feb. 19). As you well know, the point of my remarks was not the amount of compensation legislators receive, but the fact they gave themselves an increase at the same time as they will be cutting jobs and decreasing salaries for so many others.
