Kudos to Latimer for 3% Pay Cut

Congratulations to George Latimer for taking a 3% cut in his salary. When the company I worked for was in deep financial trouble, we all took pay cuts from 10% up to  20%.  Our company survived and so did we.

Most of our state representatives think they got elected to hold a lifetime career as our representatives. That is not the way most voters see it. No matter what their achievements may be, if any, we did not elect them to a lifetime career. Most of them have families. They ought to spend more time with their families and friends and not treat Albany as though it was their second home. It isn’t!

Why don’t they step down and let others represent us? What we need most in Albany is fresh blood and fresh thinking.

    We are fortunate to have Assemblyman Latimer represent us. His action proves that you can get more for less.

    Other areas, that make do with politicians rather than representatives are less fortunate; proving you don’t necessarily get what you pay for.

    i believe george latimer and some other elected officials are underpaid to begin with therefore i do not agree with the financial cut taken by assemblyman latimer

    Why can’t Wall Street execs follow in this man’s footsteps and take salary cuts in the form of economic stimulus for the rest of the country?? The money can be put back into tax payers’ pockets and offset costs of increased living expenses during a time of recession - in other words, why can’t those earning over $1mm/year start to contribute more efficiently and effectively to our society that afforded them such an opportunity to earn vast quantities of money in the first place??

    Oh - forgive me. When Wall Street is asked to do what Mr. Latimer has done it is called “Socialism” or “Over regulation by the Gov’t” but when elected officials do it, it’s called “heroic.” The two way street mentality of America is at best….hypocritical….at worst….schizophrenic.
