Honolulu Star-Advertiser – Honolulu Salary Commission votes no to a 3% raise for officials

The Honolulu Salary Commission voted unanimously to recommend no salary raises for elected and appointed city officials.

This controversial meeting was held on Thursday without oral testimony. In light of the economic crisis facing the city and the state due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with many furloughed or laid off, several elected officials and citizens objected to the nearly across-the-board 3% pay raises, with many of the listed officials already making well over $100,000.
