THE COMMUNITY VOICE: Letter to the Editor

Public Servants or Self-Servants

After doing research on the salaries, benefits, pensions and other perks of certain employees, I’ve come to the conclusion that the term, “Public Servant” is merely a euphemism for self-servants. This does not apply to all cases, but when someone’s potential retirement income far exceeds what they made while working. There’s a problem. No need to wonder why towns, states and country are in debt. Remember, governments are not profit making entities. In fact, the opposite is true. The solution is of course, to raise taxes so that those who are not “public servants” have less to fund those who are. We are at the mercy of the unions who think their members have a sense of entitlement. Perhaps they should pay into and live on social security like the rest of us. – Oh, and wait until they’re 65 years old to start collecting!

Sincerely,

Michael J. Rusznak
