A city commission recommended pay raises for all the city’s elected officials in a report issued Monday.
The commission said the mayor, City Council, public advocate, controller, borough presidents and district attorneys should all get pay boosts of at least 12%, with some getting more generous boosts.
The City Council would get the biggest raise — to $138,315, a 23% boost to their current $112,500 pay, but only if they agree to give up extra payments known as “lulus” and outside income.
The mayor’s salary should be boosted to $258,750, from $225,000 now, the commission said — a 15% hike.
Mayor de Blasio has said he won’t accept a raise during his current term, but might if he’s reelected.

Who are the members of this "Commission?" do they represent common City working tax payers or are they rich bankers and developers?
...a self-appointed commission. That's all the taxpayers need to know about this...
Sounds like that 70% hike was all a distraction to put up a less newsworthy "modest" and "sensible" 23%.
I suggest a police slowdown when each elected does some sort of bullshit outside press conference or photo op if they need protection from the disgruntled masses
Merry fucking christmas you greedy fucks.
So do you think useless and crooked City Council Member Ruben Wills deserves a 12% pay raise? Do you think asshole Queens Borough President Melinda Katz (while ignoring the Jamaica quality of life issues constantly) deserves a 12% raise? How about that useless position that drains tax payers, the Public Advocate, deserves a 12% raise, really think Letitia James is worth that? HELL NO.
Considering how little most do for what comes out to be pretty much a part-time job and considering they pretty much all of them do so little to address quality of life issues in our communities, this is outrageous and is just another form of political welfare. I could certainly see if they all showed such positive results and worked really hard to improve the communities they serve, but most do not.
They already make too much money for doing shit and fucking up stuff, plus stealing, cheating and all the other shady bullshit they all do.
if Dizzy Lizzie wasn't on the council, she would be in a homeless shelter
thats why she wont talk against them
And they are doing it mid-term knowing that the dumb taxpayers will forget about it come next election.
After you all approve a 12% increase in my paycheck I say fuck'em!
pay raises for elected officials should not be decided by so called "committees" or by the electeds themselves. i say that if the council wants a raise, they put it on the ballot as a referendum or a proposition and let the people of the city decide if they deserve a raise. after all, we put them in office. why should they get to give themselves a raise for their shitty job. its simple, either vote for a raise or vote them out. its WE THE PEOPLE, and its about time the people stood up against these worthless f*#kers
They should get the same raise that they gave the police- 1%. If that was good enough for people risking their lives everyday, it's good enough for lawmakers too.
But But no more LuLus
This is utterly ridiculous! This city is a complete joke .. these a**holes have taken over and there is no accountability.. Clearly the citizens of this city are a complete nonfactor to the criminals that supposedly are supposed to work for us!
Give them the raise and take away their cars and drivers. Make them go to and fro to their photo ops using mass transit.
Then they might get a taste of how us proles live.
Next year look forward to taxes being raised to pay for this.
Why not let the taxpayers decide if these criminals deserve a raise? Since we, the taxpayers would pay for this, I think we have the right to vote yes or not to pay raises.
That's what you get for voting for an ever expanding government. New York really isn't America in many ways. These should be part time jobs with very little real power.
A huge increase? They public servants for crying out loud!
I like my PROGRESSIVE insurance but i am not a fan of PROGRESSIVES...
