“This job is very rewarding in many ways,” Mayor Christy Guerin said. “I can think of a thousand reasons” to serve, and pay isn't one of them, she said.
“You do it because you love the city,” she said.
Guerin said people who talk to her are amazed that council members earn so little. “It barely pays for what we spend on gas and lunches,” she said.

Before the pay raise city council members were getting a check for $898.00 a month, that comes out to $224.50 a week, or $56.12 a day (four day work week, the city is closed on Fridays).
Where is Mayor Guerin eating lunch at everyday?
Feel free to get a burrito at Juanita's every once and awhile.
At the new pay scale of $1,077 the council members will have $67.31 for lunch and gas everyday.
If they stay local in Encinitas their gas bill shouldn't be all that bad, they are not commuting to San Diego on the south 5.
Any suggestions for good lunch specials around town for the council?
