Lavish inaugurations….Quarter of a million dollar chiefs of staff?. What’s next?

Funkhouser hired Ed Wolf as his chief of staff at a salary of $140,000.

Wolf had worked as the head of the Public Works Department for 36 years; he took early retirement in 2003.

His pension is $109,000, which comes to a total of $249,000 a year as chief of staff.
