City salaries not high enough, or too high?

Reader James Breckenridge makes some interesting points in his Feb. 8 letter dealing with city council salaries and stipends.

Whether the planned increases are too great can be debated.

In general, I have some difficulty accepting as strongly convincing the arguments presented by people who don’t find the city hall salaries and stipends high enough for them to enter the political fray, but too high for others who are willing to do so.
