I am giving people on this board, all of you, the benefit of the doubt in assuming that this kind of public employee compensation in salary/benefits/pension will be seen as over the top crazy.

So much outrage about golden parachutes from private business executives, take a look at that city managers estimated pension... 600,000 dollars, almost as much as his ~800,000 dollar a year salary.


This is an extreme case that only the most insane can justify, but there are lower levels of over the top public employee expenses out there as well, so who's going to support pension reform!
