A.P.D. officers are going to receive a 6% raise plus $5000.00 . Sounds good or does it ? If you listen to Mayor Berry he will tell you that Police Officers have gotten 12% in raises during, his time in office. That is a lie but we expect lies from the Mayor. In fact as reported by The Albuquerque Free Press during Berry's first term he froze Police pay and then made them take a 2.4% pay cut in violation of the Police Contract.
Do the math, Officers you are not getting 6% AND YOU ARE
OWED MUCH MORE THAN $5000.00!
We at the EYE ask what about Officers
that have left The Department are they going to be made whole? We at
the EYE believe they should. We also ask about the remainder of The
City, you know the faceless people that make this City run. Where is
their raise ? They too were forced to take a pay cut. We at the EYE
believe that number was 3%. So if you put your life in danger every day
and your love ones fear you may not come home this is what liar Berry
thinks your worth. However if you sit behind a desk like the top brass and
they steal the rank and file money.
If you are part of The Berry
Administration responsible for running This City into the ground you
have it real good. As reported in The Albuquerque Free Press raises as
follows: chief administrative officer 23.9% raise, police chief 16.5 %
,CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER 14.9%, planning director14.1%, parks and
recreation director 14.1%, animal welfare director 14.1% , human
resources director 13.2% , municipal development director 13.1 % , city
attorney12.3%, economic development director 10.4%, ALL MAKING WELL OVER
100,000.00 a year and people like Perry making $188,198.00 a year.
at the Eye know what you are saying, we have to take it, it's all we
will ever get. SAD.
