NJ Mayor Seeks $51K Raise After Voting for Cut

Thursday, 16 Apr 2015 09:38 AM

The new mayor of Rahway, New Jersey, wants a $51,000 raise after cutting his predecessor's salary to $21,000 when he served on the City Council.

Mayor Samson Steinman says former Mayor Rick Proctor did not work full time.

Steinman tells the Home News Tribune he deserves a $72,000 salary because he intends to be a full-time mayor once he resigns from his $45,000-a-year job as business administrator in Bound Brook.

Steinman says he would save $80,000 a year by eliminating the city's business administrator position. He would also fulfill the role of the assistant business administrator, who retired this year.

Rahway occupies 4 square miles and is home to more than 28,000 residents.

A hearing and vote on the salary is scheduled for May 11.
