A record Sardinia should be proud of ?

Yesterday I read on our local newspaper La Nuova Sardegna that the Members of the Regional Council of Sardinia are the highest paid among all Italian regional councils.

Each of the 80 members of the Regional Council of Sardinia has a monthly gross salary of 11.417 Euro.

It is quite a considerable achievement considering that the Sardinian GDP per capita is among the lowest in Italy: 15.895 Euro in 2009 (per year!).

It should be worth considering that a member of the Regional Council of Valle d'Aosta (one of the regions with the highest GDP per capita in Italy, 26.756 Euro in 2009) has a monthly gross salary of only 6.292 Euro).
