City Council President Marc Laredo is looking for individuals interested in serving on a Blue Ribbon Commission examine the compensation of Newton’s elected officials. 

By way of background, our Mayor receives a salary of $125,000 a year for her full-time service (the Mayor is barred by our city charter from having other employment while serving as Mayor) our City Council members each receive a salary (also referred to as a stipend) of $9,750 a year; and elected officials also are eligible to receive health insurance from the city (although many obtain health insurance from other employment or their spouses and so do not use this benefit), and the Mayor and the City Council members are eligible to participate in the city’s retirement system.
