    How will she be able to make ends meet? Remember to vote in Jerry Browns tax increase this November!

    Don’t worry too much about her, weatherman, I’m sure she gets other perks. That $259k is just her salary. My guess her total compensation to be is at least twice that amount. They don’t publish it much, but you have to figure in the CALPERS bailout to pay for her retirement that will cost us tax payers in the state big $$$$. Read …………..

    California will need a lot more $$$$ in the future. Brown’s tax increase will not even come close to closing the gap.

    I think all government positions should convert over to the active duty military pay schedule. After all, why should they make any more than some grunt in the Afgan desert heat, sitting there in their air conditioned offices with plush furniture and take home cars? They think too highly of themselves, those selfish, inconsiderate, greedy, arrogant, egotistical, gubmint workers.
