We were beginning to wonder how much Setti Warren cared about his job as mayor of Newton, given his frequent weekday conference calls with the media organized by President Barack Obama’s re-election team (two this week alone). Then there was the plan to run for U.S. Senate, which Warren launched after just a year at Newton City Hall (he ended his campaign last fall).
But now we learn that Warren cares so very much about his job that, well, he deserves a 28 percent raise!..
…We would assume the people of Newton would be horrified. Then again they’re the ones who spent $200 million to rebuild one of their two high schools, giving them ownership of the most expensive public school in state history, so who knows.
