Cornwall ON – It should be fun at Council this Tuesday. City Councilor Mark MacDonald has organized a Facebook page and movement protesting the possibility that the Council will give themselves a 36.8% salary increase.
Very few of the councilors I’ve spoken with over the last week have been willing to go on the record, but we’ll be LIVE on Seawayradio.com Wednesday from 1:30 PM talking about this and other hot topic issues so if you want to have your say you can call in or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The arguments have been clear. Councilor MacDonald and his supporters feel that in a recession you shouldn’t be taking such a large raise. Last year councilors had a modest cut. Councilor Denis Thibault donated his last raise to charity. The common theme I heard was that nobody runs for City Council based on the stipend.
