To borrow from Doug Clark from today's Spokesman Review, "I’m hotter than a car hood baking under a July sun" over ex-mayor Queen Mary requesting back pay from us village people.
Since when does someone get a hefty pension after working merely four years. And since when can she not save a portion of her $100,000 a year salary for the future! It just plain irks me. And our lovely City Council will probably act like a bunch of dumb sheep, jumping off a cliff one after the other, and fulfill her request.
Queen Mary offered to set a precedent by keeping her salary at a "modest" $100,000 a year. Now she changes her mind just because she was snubbed at the election. Give me a break.
I have been unemployed for the last two years, living on a meager $14,000 a year on disability. My family is dependent on this income.
Hey, Mary! I have no sympathy for you. We are in a depression here. Go get a job at Walmart. Quit robbing me!
