Nez Perce Commish Cut Own Pay

Item: Nez Perce commissioners cut their own salaries: Other elected officials decline to do the same/Sandra Lee, Lewiston Tribune

More Info: Nez Perce County commissioners will cut their salaries by almost $3,000 each, starting Oct. 1. But the other six elected county officials declined to do the same thing Wednesday, saying if they give up this year's 5 percent raise, they go back to their Oct. 1, 2008, salary. With inflation, their loss would be 10 to 14 percent in buying power.

Question: Should legislators and other elected officials in Idaho cut their pay, too? How much?
