These people seem to get it. Faced with across-the-board budget cuts, including furlough days and police staff reductions, Doraville City Council members are leading the way by slicing their own compensation.
The council will soon be voting on an amendment to the city charter to cut council members’ pay from $1,200 per month to $700 per month. That is a $6,000 drop from their current annual compensation of $14,400.
While we were being forced to work holidays for no pay and eventually furloughed, our scumbag commissioners refused to to cut their pay, hiding behind "it's the law, we can't take a pay cut". While at the same time handing out pay raises upwards of 40 percent per year and car allowances for their staff.
The commissioners are hoping we will fall for their supposed ignorance of our holiday pay cut. Are they serious? For 9 years they were unaware we work 10 hour shifts? B.S.!
Stay strong, stay united and put that ticket book away!
