Lest The Berkeley Daily Gazette be painted as a publication falling wholly within moderate or Conservative party lines, it should be noted that the Gazette supported a salary increase for the directors of the school board: “Whether we believe the board merits an increase in salary due to their actions, or inactions, is less important than the fact that they have been, by every feasible analysis, grossly under compensated for what amounts to long hours of work with the primary taxing jurisdiction of the City of Berkeley.”
