Mayor to cut his salary?

According to The Blade, Mayor Carty Finkbeiner is offering to cut his salary by 10% to help the budget situation...

The mayor earns $136,700 per year, so a 10% cut is $13,670.

I can't help but remember Carty's comments when people complained about $39,900 for planting flowers. He said that it was a 'pittance' compared to the entire city budget...

So now I wonder what word he's going to use to describe his $13,670 pay cut?

If Carty really wants to help out the budget and cut his salary, how about taking a $46,000 cut. Of all the bad decisions he has made during his current term, I figure it would be a nice way of making some kind of amends to the citizens of Toledo.

I think he should cut more from his own pocket. Getting rid of the dead weight on council is an idea I have been preaching for a long time now. He must be having Brian read my postings!

That, to "his dishonor," is chump change.

Given my first choice, I'd rather that we changed the chump.
