Billion Vows To Cut His Salary

In a pledge that I would almost be willing to bet my own salary that Governor Rounds doesn't match, Jack Billion has vowed that he would cut his salary to 51st among the other governors in the country until the teachers salaries in South Dakota rise above 51st in the nation.

"Real leadership starts at the top, and I find it unconscionable for the governor of a state with the nation's lowest teacher pay to be paid 37th or 36th among state governors," said Billion. "I will cut my pay to dead last among governors until our state's teachers move up from dead last in teacher pay. And when South Dakota's teacher salaries rank 48th or 42nd, I will consider adjusting my pay to 48th or 42nd among governors."

Any takers?
