Yes, he did. From $500 a month as part-time mayor to $800 as full-time mayor. By the way, he did not ask for this increase - it was voted in by the city council.
But a "raise of 60 percent" sounds so much better if one isn't concerned about being accurate. And they aren't.
You know what they say about figgers don't lie, but liars always figger. This is a good example.
