Alderman Who Pushed For Wage Freezes Will Ask For Pay Raise For Elected Officials

A Springfield alderman who has called for wage freezes for city workers says he will propose some modest pay raises for aldermen and other city elected officials, including the mayor, city clerk and treasurer. 


Ward 7’s Joe McMenamin plans to introduce an ordinance that calls for raises of no more than one-percent per year for each of the four years in those officials’ next term, starting in 2015. 


McMenamin says the salaries of aldermen have been frozen for four years.  He says the one-percent increase barely keeps pace with inflation… and thus is the equivalent of a wage freeze.
