BMLL slapped!

Birmingham mayoral pay raise gets final passage – Breaking News from The Birmingham News –

The pay raise is pretty substantial, $40,000 a year for a job that already pays $68,000, plus a $20,000/year “discretionary expense account” which Larry uses on God only knows what. But no raise for the incumbent.

The bill would deny current Mayor Larry Langford any increase this term. “I think it’s a direct slap at Larry,” said Rep. John [“Horse Track”] Rogers, D-Birmingham.

The Senate altered an earlier House-passed bill sponsored by Rogers that would have given Langford an immediate $45,000 raise plus an $800-a-month car allowance. The House then concurred in the change.
