It's good to be a NYC councilperson these days.
"City Council members Dan Garodnick and Ben Kallos will likely make more than the people they serve this year, thanks to a council-wide 32 percent pay raise. Both councilmen voted in favor of the pay raise that was approved on Feb. 5, making their annual salary $148,000, effective immediately."
"Garodnick, who represents District 4 — spanning from Stuyvesant Town
up to the west of Second Avenue and west of Lexington Avenue above East
79th Street — will make 1.34 times what his constituents make.
"His district's median household income is $110,826."
While Kallos responded to Dnainfo.com, Garodnick was a no comment.
