Opinion from contributor Hal Davidson:
OPEN LETTER TO THE MAYOR, COUNCIL AND PEOPLE OF QUARTZSITE
Mr. Mayor Council and people of Quartzsite I would like to present to you some of the salaries that our State and other States pay their Governors. These are the salaries of the highest elected executives in their respective states. The reason I bring this to your attention today is because, in my opinion and that of others, Quartzsite is paying a salary to our Town Manager that we can neither afford or should be willing to afford.
The salary for the Governor of Colorado is $90,000
The salary for the Governor of Oregon is $93,000
Last but not least, the salary for the Governor of the State of Arizona is $95,000.
That is $1,000 less than the Quartzsite Town Manager is paid.
We can just not afford this high salary in Quartzsite under the current economic constraints we are faced with. That is just one of the reasons there is a recall going on right now. We, the people, feel that under your leadership, we as a community are making the same financial mistakes over and over again. We are not going to allow you to continue on this path.
