Good post! Just sent this email to Lincoln Restler's office:

District 33 Office,

Hi! I'm Zachary, a Williamsburg resident in District 33. I want to voice support and recommend Mayor Adams should follow the law and appoint a commission to review elected officials’ salaries and propose appropriate inflation adjustments. City law [1] requires that every four years the mayor appoint a compensation review commission.

Although it may seem counterintuitive, having pay at the very least match inflation helps make sure our very best are represented in local government and races are more competitive. Let's apply some pressure here!

Bill deBlasio was mayor in 2020, not Bloomberg. Otherwise, an insightful and well-argued article.
