In defense of his “high salary,” incoming Cambridge City Manager Richard Rossi says, “I will tell you that I work hard” (“Cambridge official’s salary hit,” Metro, March 19). Imagine all the hard work that would be required to make us all believe that he is uniquely deserving of $330,000 a year. Would this include direct, 24-seven access to his office for the people who are paying him to work so hard?
Or might we politely request that Rossi get over the notion that working hard justifies a salary that takes the good people of Cambridge to the cleaners. Rossi’s staff works hard too, as do people who clean bathrooms, teachers, etc.
