Mayor Lou Rosamilia released his
first budget Monday and in it he included raises for some of his top appointees.
I’ll do a more in depth piece on
the budget that raises taxes just 2 percent for Thursday, and Danielle Sanzone
will a story on it tomorrow but for right now the raises definitely jump out considering
the recipients only been in the respective jobs for about nine months.
-Deputy Mayor Pete Ryan would see
his salary go from $80,342 to $85,000.
-Commissioner of the Planning
Department Bill Dunne would see his salary go from $72,450 to $77,000.
-Confidential Assistant to the
Mayor Kathleen Ryan Cassidy would go from $46,597 to $47,800.
-Deputy Director of Public
Information Mike Fraser would see go from $46,075 to $47,300.
-The deputy mayor’s secretary Kitty
Carley isn’t getting a raise but there wasn’t one last year so that salary
jumped from $0 to $42,474.
The mayor’s salary would stay the
same at $95,000.
As I said, the raises aren’t all
that astronomical but in today’s day and age raises to appointed public
employees typically cause taxpayers to get their back up.
