Enough With The Crying Over Salisbury Mayor And Council Salary Increase




Let me be clear right here and right now, I 100% support this pay raise for our Mayor and Council. You people that want to sit from afar and act like this isn't a deserved raise are ridiculous. Do you have any idea how much time Jake Day spends working this job? He is constantly working and honestly this salary should have been taken care of years ago .

The Mayor's Salary will jump to 50k after the next City Election in 2019, with the Council President getting 15k and Council members jumping to 12k.

This isn't a guarantee that anybody that even voted for or against this will be re-elected to receive this raise, so this idea that they are giving themselves a raise is a lie. This is  thankless job that is not a part time one regardless of what others would like for you to believe. Council members and the Mayor deserve this pay.

He's giving his raise to charity. Did you not know that.

no raise for the employees that have to enforce the rules they implement.

The County employees receive cost of living and merit increases regularly or when their job description changes. The Mayor and City Council deserve pay raises also, I to support the increases!

They have recommended increasing the salary for the next Wicomico County executive by $40,000, from $85,000 to $125,000. Do you support that, too?

If the county council approves a big -- $20,000 or more -- pay raise for the executive do you think Culver would veto it? If he did, would the council override the veto?

I don't support the raises because politics isn't supposed to be a job or a career. You are not supposed to be supplementing your income with the money you get. If you seek the position you should put in the time it takes to do the job to the best of one's ability regardless if you are paid or not otherwise don't do it.

Obviously, you're not letting quite a few comments go thru.

I wonder if Jack Heath will keep Wayne Shitsburg employed after the election?

Elected officials should be paid at all. They like to say higher pay would get more people to seek office. Money should not be an incentive for someone to serve the community and money is the reason they have lost sight of their true responsibility.
