Guest opinion: Her vote was no conflict of interest

Original post made on Nov 13, 2008

The Almanac's Nov. 5 editorial erroneously stated that I voted "to give the city's non-benefited workers ... an additional 2 percent increase in addition to the standard raise recommended by the union." That's not right. Only one raise was given, a one-time cost-of-living-increase, negotiated by staff, not me or any other City Council member. It was given only to temporary employees who otherwise had received increases of 0 percent in 2006, 1 percent in 2007, and 2 percent in 2008. The overall cost of the 2 percent raise was less than $25,000.
