Carl DeMaio calls for public officials to forgo salaries during pandemic

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Chairman of Reform California, Carl DeMaio, joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss the question, with so many citizens and businesses suffering, should politicians forgo their salary during the lockdown?

DeMaio recently tweeted, “San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria and City Council accept MASSIVE PAY HIKE during Covid-19 lockdowns! An outrageous slap in the face to struggling small businesses and unemployed workers.”

The former councilmember said he voluntarily cut his own city council salary by 22% in 2009, and rejected the politician’s pension.
