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!!!
