Newton city councilors voted Monday to override a mayoral veto and give pay increases to Mayor Ruthanne Fuller and themselves (but not the school committee), the Boston Globe reports.

The 22 to 2 vote to override was the first mayoral veto in 20 years. Ward 2 Councilor at-large Jake Auchincloss and Ward 7 Councilor at-large Becky Grossman, both candidates for Congress and reelection, once again voted against.
