To say that Michael Bloomberg collects $1 a year to be the city’s mayor would not be accurate.
That would require him actually cashing his checks.
Bloomberg, who foregoes a $225,000 annual mayoral salary, keeps his paychecks as souvenirs, said his spokesman, Stu Loeser. Bloomberg has often joked that his failure to cash his checks is throwing off the city’s accounting books by nearly $1 a year.
Don't you wish you could afford to keep your paychecks as souvenirs?
