In the Salisbury Independent this is quoted by Jack Heath.
During past meetings, Heath has opposed $50,000, calling it too low.
“I liken it to the business world. I was asked by one of the councilmen what the salary would be for a CEO with a $58 million company (the city’s annual budget). It would be between $65,000 and $80,000 depending on the company,” he said.
You liken it to the business world? What dumb councilman asked that dumb question because the Mayor is not a CEO that runs a $58 million company. Jake Day hired and inexperienced community organizer that has absolutely no experience running a city. Then the idiot hires TWO inexperienced deputy administrators with NO EXPERIENCE running a city. The additional deputy administrator was hired because he/she was going to be responsible the Folk Festival. A couple of weeks later Jake Day hires some clown working at the Wicomico Day Center to run the National Folk Festival. I don't know about you, but how can a part-time employee working in a daycare center with kiddy's know how to run a large National Folk Festival.
You see Jackie Man, this is why Jake Day doesn't deserve a pay raise. He knew going into the job that it was a part-time mayor's position so again he should only get part-time pay. As a matter of fact, he should donate his current pay to some of the city council members because they are the ones that are underpaid.
