Open Letter to John Chiang, CA State Controller:

As ever more public sector salaries in California have been revealed (thanks to VOSD) in the $500,000-$1,000,000 range, public outcry has called for Government Transparency.

John Chiang, has wisely offered to publish all Municipal Salaries on the State Controller's web site (thanks to KPBS), so that the public might finally be informed of the huge benefits of public service. But he stops short of publishing ALL PUBLIC SALARIES, PENSIONS, and BENEFITS.

I think it is way past time to publish all Municipal salaries, I've been calling for that sine 1996, but why not publish the STATE Salaries, too? Once people know how lucrative it is to be part of the Public Sector, all those talented business types will come work for the government and fix all the problems.

As a tax paying citizen of the State of CA, I demand that you publish the salaries of the UC Regents, Presidents, Chancellors, and Professors, ALL COMMUNITY COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS, and ALL LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD Superintendents, too.

In San Diego we have a small pension problem, so you should also publish ALL PUBLIC PENSIONS and BENEFITS PACKAGES TOO!
