Jason Marcus wants to increase the Mayors salary. Does he want to increase it because he thinks the Mayor is under paid or does he have another motive? Anyone know?

Give the money to the fire dept. and the police dept.
And don't forget to help out the Auxilaries either.
They all work the same way just some dont get paided.

HE ALREADY INCREASED THE FLEET MGR POS. BY 13K
AND ADDED 2 MORE POSITIONS AT 138K TO CITY YARDS AND YET THE POLICE AND FIRE DEPTS HAVE NOT RECEIVED A CONTRACT AND ARE HEADING TO ARBITRATION. HE SHOULDN'T GET A RAISE UNTIL ALL CONTRACTS ARE SETTLED.

Absolutely NOT !!! Are you kidding ???? He has inflated the city's payroll unbelievably -- added to staffing. It is NOT just the salary people are paid, it is the cost of the 'bennies'... insurance, retirement, vacation/sick/holiday time..... Enough is enough !!!!!

This is a joke right ????

Using basic physics and determining displacement of the mayor versus the volume of water in his new pool, I would say yes, he does need a raise to pay for the water required to refill it after he climbs out.

He knew the pay when he ran! Why not cut some of the pork from the city budget??? What a disgrace that only $338K was cut..What will I be paying for property tax in the next fiscal year??? Marcus is nothing but a HACK & FOOL who doesn't pay property taxes

Why doesn't anyone know what city employees salaries are? This should be public information!! We have the right to know where our tax money is going.

Judging by your use of exclamation points, I'm guessing this is an important issue to you. Have you actually gone to City Hall and made a request for this information?

It's public information but good luck trying to obtain it.

Here's the mayors office which I think is a little steep.

The mayor makes $85,000.00
Chief of Staff $81,000.00
Constituent Services Director $52,549.00
Executive Assistant $44,613.00
Secretary $41,647.00
Constituent Services Aid (part time)$52,549.00

you have to request what each individual person's salary is in city services ect. Their salaries are one line item and should be broken down by name and salary of that person. Then you can see how much the mayors hacks make. Some make more than others.

There's no way the above is correct. At least I hope it's not.

Chief of Staff:$81 plus benefits ... wowie !!!! that comes close to a pkg of about $100,000 per year....

I believe benefits pkgs (sick time, vac time, personal time, and health insurance) probably equal about 35% of the base salary -- you do the math .... Anyone doubt this or can clarify more precisely ????

The benefits pkgs are for ALL employees ...

Why are ALL these people needed in the mayor's office ??? That's outrageous !!!!

Do you see why people are voting 'no' for charter reform ??? Putting in a mayor for 4 years could be a huge financial mistake....
