Those who question Marietta city council raise are uninformed

November 2, 2013
The Marietta Times

After reading the "Your tax dollars at work" political ad in Saturday's Marietta Times, I just have to respond. The council pay raises for the next council is because the Public Employees Retirement System has a minimum amount for full-time employees. This has been done before, so I don't know what the big deal is. Our council has a big responsibility and deserve being respected. Marietta is a multi-million dollar business and our council people probably make less than minimum wage. They attend numerous committee meetings, council meetings and spend a lot of hours answering emails and checking out constitute complaints. A $1,500 raise a year being questioned by the Republican Party shows just how uninformed they are.
