What should we pay the Mayor?
Not the current Mayor. Under state law, no elected official can have his or her salary raised during a term of office. We all should acknowledge that Wauwatosa has been fortunate to have Mayors and alderpersons who have been willing to work for low salaries. Any salary discussion should not be a referendum on the job performance of any Mayor, present or past. It should be about how much the citizens of Wauwatosa want to pay whoever holds our highest elected office.
