LEAD BY EXAMPLE
LA has the highest paid Council Members in the nation, whose salaries are $180,000. I will start by halving mine. Only if our leaders are fiscally responsible can they ask our city family to contribute more towards their retirement and to embrace innovative workplace practices.
A council member has a 20 person staff, 8 cars and $1M in discretionary funds. I will use my own car and I will switch to some part time staff hired from our neighborhoods. They will ensure that local concerns about development are heard loud and clear at city hall.
