Raise may be coming

first_imgAssemblyman Hector De La Torre, D-South Gate, said it’s only fair to raise the pay scale, since it was last raised in 1984. “Adjusted for inflation, the dollar amounts only have one-half the buying power,” De La Torre said. “For those who have been in local government, you do a lot of work on a day-to-day basis. They deserve a chance to bring it up to date.” The bill won’t affect some city councils like Santa Fe Springs’ or Montebello’s, which have raised their salaries – as allowed under state law – by 5 percent a year and have a higher pay than their new base amounts. HEALTH TALK: Sally Seven, policy analyst for the League of Women Voters, will speak about universal health care from 10 a.m. to noon May 26 at a meeting to be held by the Whittier Area Interfaith Council at St. Matthias Episcopal Church, 7056 Washington Ave. For more information, call (562) 698-9741. FUNDRAISER: Assemblyman Bob Huff, R-Diamond Bar, will hold a kickoff dinner-dance for his 2008 state Senate campaign at 6:30 p.m. June 8 at the Pacific Palms Resort, One Industry Hills Parkway, Industry. The theme is “Dancing to Latin Rhythms.” For reservations, call Mei Mei Huff, (909) 815-7272, or fax (909) 839-2960, or e-mail [email protected] Tickets are $99. MOLINA HONORED: Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina was honored by the California Latino Legislative Caucus at the sixth annual Latino Spirit Awards ceremony. “I want to thank the Latino Legislative Caucus for this recognition, and I congratulate the Caucus on its 34th Anniversary,” said Molina. “It is a tremendous honor to be included on such a distinguished list of current and past recipients.” Molina was selected as a recipient of the award for her pioneering efforts to empower the community at all levels of government. MILLER HONORED: The National Association of Manufacturers has given its Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence to Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea. The award, which was presented by a delegation of property managers visiting from Orange County, recognized Miller’s efforts to provide tax relief for small businesses, reduce regulatory barriers to community development, and bolster the nation’s housing market.

A potential pay raise for some local council members moved closer to becoming reality this week. The state Assembly voted 64-8 Thursday to approve AB 701, which would double the base amount of pay for council members, whose salaries are based on their city’s population. The bill now goes to the state Senate. In the Whittier area, Pico Rivera’s council members potentially would be the biggest beneficiaries. They would be allowed to raise their salaries from $882 to $1,000 a month. last_img read more
