Salary for new manager position seems high

-A +A
Nothing personally against the newly-hired assistant city manager. However, to give a $145,000-plus salary to a single person without even a family to raise in these tough economic times while many families raising children in this area are being laid off and struggling seems to me like a political appointment to a newly created high-paying unnecessary position and a salary that three or more families could live on. This is coming from the same elected officials who just announced they don’t have enough money to keep the libraries open except for very few hours. Oh well. You get who and what you vote for.
