AIG bonuses echo city’s ‘gifts’ to its directors | Letters | April 3

I can’t escape thinking how the current controversy and “outrage” over bonuses given to AIG executives – especially those responsible for creating the current mess – reflects a similar dynamic and need for correction we have here on Bainbridge Island.
My hope is that in light of what is being displayed now at a global level re AIG, that this city steps up now to “do the right thing.” From what I heard on Nightline on March 18, it appears that some of the AIG executives have already returned or pledged to return their bonuses.
Who’ll be the first at city hall to step up and return theirs, I wonder?
