Letters: Bernard Parks and 'double-dipping'

May 04, 2012

Re "Treating a spending addiction," Opinion, April 30

I suggest that City Councilman Bernard C. Parks — who receives both a salary for his current job and, as a retired Los Angeles police chief, a pension — put his money where his mouth is and give up his double-dipping. Beyond that, Parks should really perform "public service" by proposing a ban on double-dipping.

If an individual feels the need to spend his career in public service, it should be sufficient to retire on one pension.
