In my opinion, to the extent that Pleasanton regards itself as a "community of character," elected officials should donate their time as elected officials in return for all that the community has given them...public education, public protection, etc. In other words, elected officials should return to the community what they have received from the community. There are plenty of citizens that would do the job of councilpersons and mayor for free...or, at least for low bid.
This raise exposes the greed of our elected officials.
