Letters: Upping council pay could add at least 1 candidate

I loved the “Our Views” editorial “End payola on council.” I love the fact that you tackle any topic where abuse is sensed — no holds barred. I also enjoyed the recent, eye-popping article, “Raise proposed for Metro Council,” where Councilwoman C. Denise Marcelle suggested a $70,000 salary wouldn’t be out of line for Metro Council members — she was quoted saying “It’s a no brainer for me.” Good Lord!! I’m 77 years old, but I might be up to campaigning for that job.
