I agree with Mr. Richard Brandau's letter ("Against pay raise for mayor", March 13, Kent Reporter), but what do you expect when you attract people for the position of mayor at $102,000 like Suzette Cooke?
Community Events, March 2015
Today, as I sit in my broker's office at Kent Station's Coldwell Banker Bain Real Estate, reading the Kent Reporter article on how the elephants will be removed from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, my mind drifts back to the hot summer day in 1975.
It seems that Mayor (Suzette) Cooke is only concerned that her salary should be comparable to the salaries of mayors of similar-sized cities.
It’s startling to see that elephants will no longer be in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Frankly, I'm very surprised our local legislators are actively supporting, or appear to support, SB 5893 and HB 1930.
