Sometimes what’s legal is at least as disgusting than what’s illegal. Toward the end of Donovan Slack’s story in today’s Boston Globe on the Boston Licensing Board, which is at the center of the Dianne Wilkerson saga, we learn:
- That the board members receive $85,000 for working part-time, their only requirement being to show up for public hearings three mornings a week.
- That the chairman, who’s paid $100,000, “sets his own hours.”
- That they were making $60,000 before Gov. Deval Patrick signed a pay raise into law last year.
