A submission to the Determination of allowances for Mayors, Deputy Mayors and Councillors

I wish to state, as a City of Yarra ratepayer, my opposition and objection to pay rises in the current Covid‐19 ravaged recession that is seeing many shops, businesses and employees either lose income or have it dramatically downgraded.

Perspective and leading by example is needed at this critical time in a pandemic that will have flow on effects for decades to come. The optics of awarding pay rises to people who are already well remunerated with a degree of job security would be poorly received by the community.
