What worth councilors?

What worth councilors? - The Boston Globe
A compensation review committee appointed by the mayor is probably going to recommend later this spring that salaries for the mayor and the City Council -- now $150,000 and $75,000, respectively -- be hiked by an amount to be determined.
Some related commentary on the web in the Boston Herald Blog, a recent Globe editorial, and a story from last week's Globe which claims:
Boston councilors are also relatively well paid, according to the National League of Cities. A 2001 survey found the average salary for councilors in cities with populations of 200,000 and up was $39,061.
