The city’s district attorneys are looking for a fat raise.
The five DAs penned a letter asking that their pay be hiked to $250,000 a year — up from the $190,000 they make now, a 32% bump.
The prosecutors made the plea in a letter to the commission formed by City Hall to consider pay raises for elected officials, playing up their high-level duties.
"We are responsible for the prosecution of the most serious and violent criminal offenses including murders, rapes, robberies, gang violence, child abuse and domestic violence. We conduct long term investigations into sophisticated white-collar crimes, official misconduct and corruption, gun and drug trafficking and other offenses," they wrote to the Quadrennial Advisory Commission.
They went on to complain that their six-figure salaries pale in comparison to those of senior partners at private law firms, who earn millions.
