Yeah! I completely support your editorial on pay for city councilors. I have spoken with Penny York, Rob Gandara and Biff Traber about this issue. A few decades ago there was research done that said Corvallis is the largest city in Oregon that does not pay city councilors. That is embarrassing for a city the size and wealth of Corvallis. I think city councilors should receive a $10,000 stipend per annum for their services. What we ask of our city councilors is a huge dedication of volunteer time.

I admire those who are working full-time and are also serving on council. Let's show them our appreciation by offering some compensation for their dedication. It is beyond time for a change.
