US Governors not paid much

USA Today has a list of salaries for US Governors.

The highest paid is Pennsylvania at $190,823 and the lowest Maine at $70,000 where the Governor’s wife works as a waitress to supplement their income.

This reminds me that the Mayor of Auckland is paid a salary of (NZ)$259,500 putting them ahead of every US Governor (ignoring exchange rates for now). The Deputy Mayor gets $146,200 which is higher than 30 of the 50 US Governors.
