SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Santa Fe mayor’s position will soon be full-time, and with that will come with a pay raise. The big question is, how much?
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the independent salary commission is asking to hear from citizens on what the mayor should be paid when it becomes a full-time executive job next March.
It will hear from the public twice this month on May 17 and May 24.
The commission could set the salary between $145,000 and $175,000 a year, plus other benefits.
Currently, Mayor Javier Gonzales makes just under $30,000 for a part-time position.
