Mayor and City Council Vote themselves raises

The Durham City Council voted 6-1 Monday night to raise the pay for mayor and council members starting next year.

The mayor’s salary will rise from $29,875 to $41,536, and the salary for council members will rise from $25,378 to $35,200 beginning Jan. 1, 2022.

Councilmember Pierce Freelon, who is not seeking re-election, proposed the raises, saying bigger stipends would enable more people to run for public office.
