I voted but didn't really

I voted but didn't really have enough information. Can we afford it? How many hours per week do they spend in direct or indirect city business and how many hours does an average assemble person spend? Does the size of the area serve warrant paid leaders?
In my opinion, the Business of the Borough is big considering that there are 4 sizable cities, a huge industry of Tourism, a recovering gas and oil industry, fishing and a few more goodies. We well traveled highway, a railroad to Seward, ferry service to at least 2 of our ports.
With the scope of responsibility because of area size and complex array of activities at all corner, by all means pay these folks!
