Councilwoman Brandy Williams weighed in on the topic again today on her Facebook wall.
Her comment earned her the spot on today’s Quote of the Day.
“My $6,250 (annual salary) does not afford me the luxury of bacon,” she wrote.
Here is the full text of Williams’ post:
“Back to the Bacon.
It was a sign of wealth that a ‘man’ (this was back in the day) could, “bring home the bacon.” When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. They would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and chew the fat.
So if you ever come into my office and there is bacon hanging on wall, you’ll know I’m no longer on City Council. My $6,250/year does not afford me the luxury of bacon.”
