    California city council healthcare benefits

    Two-thirds of Cali­for­nia cit­ies boost city coun­cil salar­ies with health­care con­tri­bu­tions. The be­ne­fits have little con­nec­tion to a city’s size. In some smal­ler cit­ies, part-time politi­cians re­ceived be­ne­fits for 2009 far great­er than those provided by the largest cit­ies and most private-sec­tor em­ploy­ers.
