Trenton council members preparing budget amendment to cut salary of mayor

    Council members in Trenton are fed up with what they call a poor job performance by Mayor Tony Mack, and as a result, they are preparing an amendment to the budget that would eliminate salary payments in his office through the month of June.

    The Times reports the amendment, if approved, would mean the mayor and seven other employees in his office would go without pay from the beginning of March through June 30.

    The amendment is scheduled to be up for a vote the week of February 20, according to The Times.

    Mayor Mack’s annual salary is $126,460.

    Council Vice President Marge Caldwell-Wilson tells The Times the amendment is the only way to get the mayor’s attention.
