Deferring Benefits: Would that have happened in Coral Gables?

I wonder what sacrifices the city’s management, commissioners and mayor are willing to make for the good of the city.
So far there is no evidence that the city leaders are willing to take the lead in making sacrifices for the city. Indeed, more than once we have heard that we have to keep employees, salaries and benefits up to sustain our quality of life. Who is willing to forgo some of their salaries and benefits to demonstrate to the unions that they will lead the city in a time of sacrifice. Will the candidates for public office make a pledge to work ad honorem for the well being of the city.
Florida A&M University President James Ammons says he’s deferring an $80,000 performance bonus due to tough economic times.
