Excellent letter-to-the-editor from a resident who correctly questions the validity of setting public pay by comparing to other public agencies:

Not just a small raise, not a moderate raise, a whopping $30,000 raise, each. There are multiple glaring errors in the study that render it an invalid salary comparison. I will explain them one by one.
