(Washington, DC)  —  DC Council members trail only their counterparts in Los Angeles when it comes to annual salary.  According to a just released survey by the Pew Charitable Trust, the average DC Council member earns nearly 126-thousand-dollars a year with DC Council Chairman Kwame Brown making 190-thousand.  That averages out to nearly 131-thousand-dollars a year, trailing only L-A’s average of almost 179-thousand-dollars a year.  However, while DC Council members are considered part-time employees and free to hold other jobs, L-A Council members are considered full-time employees.  Members of the New York City Council average just under 122-thousand-dollars a year to come in third place in the survey.  A total of 15 U.S. cities were studied.
