Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

The Palm Beach Post

decided to check the time sheets of gubernatorial candidates and current cabinet members Republican Bill McCollum and Democrat Alex Sink. Turns out, in the past two months neither has been working that hard. 

McCollum averages about 22 hours of work a week as attorney general -- a job for which he's paid $131,000 a year. 

CFO Sink gets in about 33 hours of work a week. Not exactly a workaholic in the traditional sense, but still a bit more dedicated than McCollum. 

Then again, both are juggling their campaigns. But with the current Governor, AG, CFO and possibly the Lt. Gov all seeking a new office, should we expect that all of Florida's top elected officials will be working part time until November 2010? 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
