Water Authority Perks

Over at the Water Buffalo Press there's a pretty insightful take on last night's action by the Monroe County Legislature to approve a Maggie Brooks proposal to freeze -- as the D&C styled it -- benefits for Water Authority Board members.

This observer thinks Water Buffalo is too harsh on Brooks. After all, she didn't
have to propose anything. In the weeks since the D&C story appeared about perks paid to the water board, County Democrats have proposed nothing whatsoever, and you'd think they would have hopped to it, if only for political points to be scored.

However, that doesn't detract from the overall thoughtfulness of the Water Buffalo piece. Its analysis is much more subtle than its title; so read on.
