Interesting article and comments from Yoriko
Original post made by Too much traffic, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on May 9, 2011
An interesting article about how much the city paying for lifetime benefits for former council members.
But of greater interest is the comment from Yoriko:
""It's a pretty generous package for sure," said former Councilwoman Yoriko Kishimoto, who took a financially conservative line on the council when it came to benefits. "In my case, I can kind of justify it because I essentially volunteered eight years of my life.""
I guess when you do "volunteer" work, you can expect some kind of financial windfall in return!!!
