My hubby has been a volunteer all his life, as have I. We have been
involved in Academic Decathlon for 20 years. He has been on the
School Board for 12 years, the county education committee, and lots
of other volunteer work. I have been a volunteer EMT for 18 years,
pto, seniors, and church work. not once have we been paid for this.
all our expenses for travel, motels, time, etc came out of our own
pockets. i feel insulted, as do many others for this blanket
most elected officials do not have ‘billions of dollars from their
speciality’. only the ones who love the tv cameras.

from their speciality (before election) do not take a 1/2 income
paycut. This would create more monies for necessary programs (like
education and fixing roads, etc.). It would allow us to cut taxes.
> I always a public offical (servant) means no pay. Doing this as
a volutary contribution to the greater good.
