Duluth Mayor Don Ness Will Not Accept Pay Raise

Youtube

Earlier this week, the Duluth City Council voted for a 25% raise in pay for Duluth Mayor Don Ness.  That would increase his salary from $78,000 to $97,500, and it would mark the first raise for that position in years.  However, that raise in pay will not be happening.

KBJR-TV is reporting that  in a news conference this morning, Mayor Ness said he will not accept the raise due to moral reasons and that the salary should be about the position, not the person.

That means that whenever Duluth elects a new mayor, that person would have to decide whether to accept the raise in pay for the position.  After Mayor Ness refused, that person would kind of look like a tool accepting it, don’t you think?

I wouldn’t have minded if Mayor Ness accepted the raise in pay, he certainly works hard and has done a lot of good for the city, but it by refusing he is probably even more popular in the public eye.
