The board members are NOT the one who need a raise. If ANYONE should get a raise, it is the Venice police officers. People compalin about the police needing to do more, but lets see a board member chase down a drug dealer.....the police just don't get enough respect in Venice and surely deserve better!

Typical, self-serving behaviour of our politicians--the rest of us can eat cake while our exhorbitant taxes pay for their raises so they can help out their buddies. And don't forget that pension fund!

Beach Bum,

You nailed it! You wouldn't happen to "be" a police officer would you? I just think that sitting on one's ass once or twice a month does not need to be compensated as much as any type of job that has to do with the police.(See "police" article).
