Mayors support governor's pay plan

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Mayors Council of Guam's executive officers met this morning to further discuss both the governor's Hay plan proposal along with Senator Michael San Nicolas's Bill 268. "We decided today that we're going to go with what the experts did advise and did the make the recommendations of $65,000 at the time and then on top of that since the experts made the recommendation in 2010 just understand that the Mayors Council have taken on additional duties manamko centers, liberation, rhino beetle, cutting the grass the schools and recycling, so you just name, there's so many more duties so that's why the recommendation made at $75,000 for now we're going to stick by that, we support the governor's plan on this and we're hoping the legislature really sees the kind of work that we're putting into this and the kind of working we're doing here," said Sinajana mayor Robert Hoffman.

 The measure would approve the plan requiring a performance based standard for the governor, lieutenant governor, GovGuam directors, deputy directors, the attorney general and the public auditor. In Bill 268, mayors salaries would only be increased to $56,000. He says mayors will have representation during Friday's public hearing but won't be in full force as many mayors are addressing village issues as a result of the heavy rains.
