“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive”
- Sir Walter Scott 1808
Remember early 2011 when it was first reported on this blog and then in the TTG about Weymouth officials giving themselves big pay increases? Then the denials came pouring in. It was at that time our Mayor had all the TTG newspapers destroyed at the Whipple Center ( violating freedom of the press).
In the Sunday Globe 9/16/2012 headline reads 78 on payroll topped Mayor in Salary. This is what is taking place in Braintree. The Town Councilor claims compared to Quincy, and Weymouth their Mayor is underpaid and is looking to increase his salary to $130,000. He bounced the reasoning for the Braintree mayor’s increase against the Weymouth mayor’s $123,000 a year.
Back in January 2011 I stated “I continue to believe the Council will pass all these pay increases if history was any indicator.”
Well I’m back. In 2011 Weymouth Mayor Sue Kay was earning was $110,000. Now we’d like to know what increases the rest of our elected officials got.
