Phil Matier on cost of government projects, Supervisors' pay raise

A nice quote from a few years ago…

“Like many civic building projects these days, the cost of the new digs has more than tripled between conception of the project and its completion.”

– Phil Matier, SF Chronicle, 5/21/19, on the cost of the new San Francisco district attorney office, SF supes get 12% pay raise while everyone else at City Hall gets a lot less

The same piece also discusses Board of Supervisors members getting a 12% raise, courtesy of the Civil Service Commission which is made up of mayoral appointees. The politicians working together to raise their salaries at the public’s expense, but letting a special commission take the action, so that they have plausible deniability.
