Mayor Oscar Hernandez, far left, greets people waiting in line for food at Bell Food Station in Bell, Calif., Thursday, July 22, 2010. The City Council in this small Los Angeles suburb is meeting Thursday to consider firing the police chief and two top administrators over their huge salaries, including Chief Administrative Officer Robert Rizzo who makes more than $787,000 a year, nearly twice the salary of President Barack Obama.  Revelations about the pay in Bell has sparked anger in this blue-collar town that is one of the poorest in Los Angeles County. The council also will consider firing Assistant City Manager Angela Spaccia, who makes $376,288 a year, and Police Chief Randy Adams, whose annual salary of $457,000 is 50 percent more than that of Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck. City officials, including Hernandez, have defended the salaries. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)
