Officials just looking out for paycheques

Duncan – Here is an example of how amalgamation does save taxpayer dollars big time! Victoria, Saanich, Oak Bay, and Esquimalt, combined top salaries of the four mayors is more than what is paid to the mayor of Toronto. The combined salaries of the four top city managers is four times higher than what is paid to Saskatoon’s city manager. The total cost to pay three fire chiefs is more than what is paid to the New York City fire commissioner. Wages alone of these four areas tells you why city services such as pavement and sidewalks are not being completed. To keep these wages being paid with yearly increases is why property taxes are increasing.

Taxpayers, time to face reality.

Present mayors and councillors are against amalgamation because of the elimination of their paycheques.
