City Elected Officials Pay Is Raised

On November 15, the City Council passed legislation increasing the salaries of all city elected officials. The increases were the first in seven years, and were recommended by a Mayoral Commission appointed earlier this year after Mayor Bloomberg did not convene one in 2003 as required by the City Charter because of the city's then fiscal crisis.

The old and new salaries are as follows:
