Ald. McMenamin Plans Ordinance to Raise Elected Officials' Pay 1 Percent Per Year

A Springfield alderman who has in the past called for wage freezes for all city employees now says city elected officials should get a pay raise in their next term.


Alderman Joe McMenamin plans to introduce an ordinance that would permit yearly raises of no more than one-percent for the mayor, city clerk and treasurer, and aldermen… beginning with the start of the next term in 2015.


McMenamin says that with the cost-of-living, a one-percent yearly pay raise is virtually the same as a wage freeze.
