Also - if they don't get compensated, they will be serving their own interests ( like say they are Read Morea lawyer who represents folks who come in from the council and/or zoning board and they can make money giving "legal" advice ). I'd prefer council members who serve ALL of the citizens, and not just the ones who pay.

@southeast side - What exactly does that say about the past and current council members? What doesRead Moret hat say about the school board, the PUAB, the Zoning Board? To assume that someone who decides to donate their time is only doing it because they are rich, retired or have something personal to gain, is faulty logic at best.

Southeast Side, the people who serve on the various School Boards and Park Boards don't get paidRead Moreand they do as much work as the City Council does. In fact the School District portion of our tax bill is much larger than the City's portion. For you to say that people who get elected to the City Council and don't get paid would "serve their own interests" is disingenuous and just plain wrong. If people are going to serve their own interest, they will do it whether they get paid or not. It's more about who they are as a person than if they get paid for serving or not.
