One Response to 2009 Aldermanic expenses

    I’ve been thinking of this for several days. It is not necessarily true that Ald. O’Connor offered Denise M O’Neill a 35.9 percent raise from 2008 to 2009. Aldermen use a number of accounts to pay their employees and the most likely reason for the increase is that more of the funds for Ms. O’Neill were drawn from this account in 2009. That creates the appearance of an increase.

    I apologize for not following up further on this. We need to offer Ald. O’Connor the chance to explain.
