Who should approve raises
August 15, 2013 | 06:37 PM

I feel the decision on giving any government official be it city councils, county, state or federal officials should always be done by the taxpayers vote. I would love to be able to vote myself a raise on my job. But that will never happen. For instance at the local level each aldermen's constituents should vote for his or her pay raise based on their performance in their district and the mayor's pay raise should be put to a city wide vote on the same basis.
