Proposal would give the Big Islands mayor a higher salary than Hawaii's governor.

The Hawaii County Salary Commission has proposed a $21,666 (or approximately 19.8 percent) annual salary increase for the next mayor that will take office in 2016.

"The Salary Commission unveiled its draft salary schedule Thursday, with plans to take public comment at an April 28 meeting before voting on a final plan. The meeting will be held at 10 a.m. in County Council chambers in Hilo," The Hawaii Tribune Herald reported.[1]

Currently, Mayor Billie Kenoi receives approximately $109,152 annually. The proposed increase would bring that total to $130,818.

As a comparison, Hawaii's governor earns $117,312 annually. I find it odd that a mayor would earn more money than a governor...
