More “Do as I say”

We always say volunteers on local government boards, like museum and library and other groups that operate on taxpayer money, should be paid to attend the meetings.

An argument is often made, if you want good councillors, you have to pay.

So why not extend that to other people going to meetings and sitting on committees and boards? When such committees are handling taxpayer money, pay should be normal practice. It often is not.

More galling is that many of these same boards or committees have local officials sitting on them. All of whom are paid to attend meetings!
