Will you vote for an ordinance limiting future Mayoral and Aldermanic salary increases to the same percentage as the lowest raise for any class of city employees?

Budget

Yes

The position of Alderman is a 24-7 job. I am a full-time alderman committed to serving the 50th Ward under any and all circumstances and I think small annual salary increases based on the cost of living are reasonable.

Yes

This would be a good first step. My own belief is that an elected body should have to vote on its
pay increases and then stand by that vote in front of their constituents. Other City employees do
not get to vote themselves an increase, so I think alderman get off too easy by having automatic
increases.

and regulation they enact on other City agencies, no matter the importance or funding level of
siad agency

Aldermanic salary increases are now tied to the cost of living, which I believe is fair and reasonable

candidate's responce

Yes; As Alderman I have refused my pay raise every year. It is unfair to the people of Chicago to
take a raise while we are failing to meet our pension obligations and cutting city services
