Harford County Executive Vetoes Executive Pay Raise Legislation

As reported by the Baltimore Sun, Harford County Executive David Craig vetoed legislation this week that would have increased the county executive’s base salary for the upcoming four-year term from $90,000 to $130,000.

In his veto message, Craig called the proposal to raise the executive’s base salary from $90,000 to $130,000 “a significant pay raise” that would cost taxpayers a minimum of $100,000.

The county council plans to meet this week to address the veto.

The council had been scheduled to meet next on Oct. 7. [Council President Billy] Boniface announced Tuesday, however, that “in anticipation of the county executive’s veto of Bill 14-27,” the council will hold a special session at 7:30 p.m. this Thursday, Sept. 25, “to address the override of the veto.”
