Public Records Show ... City Manager Making Almost $800,000 a Year


A city manager of a town of 40,000 making almost $800,000 a year? In a state that is having a financial crisis? Police are being laid off but this guy makes that kind of money? Some city council members making $8,000 a year while others are making over $100,000? Huh?

While city leaders were making this kind of money, the city was paying laborers $9 per hour with no benefits. Here is the story on that.

See how divisive that evil Public Records Act is? If it weren't for these public records that whole town would be living in harmony.
