I read in the Kent Reporter that Mayor Cooke desires a raise of $31,000 to approximately $133,000 a year.
Community Events, November 2014
I agree with Suzette Cooke that $101,000 a year is not suitable for the position of mayor. In fact, I think $150K would be acceptable for the position.
I agree with the writer last week that our police need a modern and usable facility, but the costs per square foot are completely out of line with reality.
The article that ran a few weeks ago in the Kent Reporter entitled, "City Council committee to study fireworks ban," indicates there remains much to be desired regarding Kent's approach to this issue.
Sometimes my epiphanies amaze even me. I am reading that the ShoWare Center is losing money faster than national Democrats are losing elected offices and that the pricey new police station for Kent is too costly for voters.
