Just saying no to dough


Vicki Vargo's final answer on the commissioners' controversial new pay raise: no thanks. The District 3 city commissioner will siphon her $8,400 increase into a special account, which she promises to spend on her constituents' needs. (How's that for buying votes?)

After taxes, the amount comes to $5,175 annually -- or about 164 feet of sidewalks for the College Park neighborhood in Vargo's district.
