State Senator Lou Correa voluntarily slashes his own pay!

“Sen. Lou Correa is the second legislator to voluntarily cut his pay immediately in accord with a recent vote by the state’s independent salary-setting commission that can’t be enforced until late next year,” according to the Sacramento Bee.

Wow!  I bet Supervisor Janet Nguyen would never cut her own pay!

The Santa Ana Democrat has asked the state controller to slice his salary to 10 percent below the current legislative salary of $116,208.

“Given the continuing decline in state revenue and the required upcoming cuts to many vital programs, I believe it is my responsibility to lead by example in reducing my salary,” Correa wrote to the state controller’s office.

Kudos to State Senator Correa for setting a fine example for the rest of the Legislators in Sacramento!
