REAL Grass Roots anger

The immediate reaction of a relatively modest, relatively Hispanic community on learning that their town manager was receiving $800,000 a year in compensation. He almost immediately had to resign. Of course, he may have been exceptionally willing to do so: he will receive $600,000 a year in pension benefits. Part time council members took home about $100,000 a year.

Now that is populist rage!

I wonder what the folks in Wilkesboro get paid? They certainly have screwed up the local budgets enough.
