Some Politicians Get It

From the Clarion-Ledger:

The Natchez Board of Aldermen has approved a 10 percent salary cut for all elected officials in the Mississippi River city to shore up a shrinking budget.

The cuts, which affect the six aldermen, Mayor Jake Middleton, City Clerk Donnie Holloway and Municipal Judge Jim Blough, go into effect in the new budget year that begins Oct. 1.

The cuts will save a combined $34,966 a year, including retirement plan costs.

Mayor Middleton, who makes just shy of $70,000 a year for his job, was not happy and even told the alderman, “y’all are going to kill me.”
