Again: Does Mayor Mark Stodola deserve a pay raise?

Posted By on Mon, Jul 8, 2013 at 6:44 AM

MAYOR MARK STODOLA
  • MAYOR MARK STODOLA
The Little Rock City Board will eventually vote, maybe this week, on City Director Brad Cazort's proposal to increase Mayor Mark Stodola's $160,000 pay by $18,000 so it will be "comparable" (equal) to that paid City Manager Bruce Moore.

Reporting in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette today
by Claudia Lauer notes that Stodola already makes more (sometimes significantly more) than mayors in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Austin, Baton Rouge, Richmond, Jackson, Boise, Providence, Tallahassee and Des Moines. He makes slightly less than the mayor of Memphis.

The article provides information that suggests one question about comparability of pay isn't only money but also duties. The official job requirements listed for city manager and mayor require much more of the city manager.
