Our city council is planning to call for a special election on Tuesday, November 8, 2018 asking if the voters want to give city council and the mayor pay raises as follows:
For council members the pay would increase to $45,300 per year from the current rate of $29,000. That comes to about a 56% increase if my math is correct.
If approved the pay rates would also be indexed so that they would not have to trouble us in the future.
We deserve better
