|Juxtapose the above stats with the recently-released Salaries for Top Administrators|
Many might be quick to judge and call for at least a 10 or 20 percent cut in salaries for those occupying the highest rungs. But do we really have any power at all. How do we make our views heard? A letter to the editor sometimes gets rejected or is published days after the story is out of the spotlight. Does anyone picket anymore?

I think that Laredo pays top dollar to many: Ray Keck, Bobby Santos, Marcus Nelson, Carlos Villarreal, Judge Valdez, others at Webb County and some at LCC. Instead of demanding that their salaries be rolled back- fat chance of that happening. I think we should shine a light on what they have accomplished or not accomplished and say to them. Yes, we'll pay you Top Dollar but we expect nothing but Top performance.
