Crazy In NC: Mecklenburg Pay Edition

Mecklenburg commissioners’ appalling pay hike speaks volumes | The Charlotte Observer:

Out of order. The height of irresponsibility.

So politically tone-deaf it seems downright criminal.

Are we describing Tuesday’s appalling vote by Mecklenburg County commissioners to hike their own pay by 43 percent?

No, those stinging words and phrases fell from the commissioners’ own lips nearly a month ago, when they pelted school board members with lectures about fiscal responsibility. The school board’s sin? Seeking $23 million in new county money as well as an $805 million school construction bond referendum this November...
Everyone who is surprised at their gall raise your hand. Didn't think so.
