Orange lawmaker gives pay hike back to community
Orange County legislator Jeffrey Berkman of Middletown has donated
his annual salary increase to a number of community organizations for
the second year in a row. Berkman said the idea came to him after he spoke
to a constituent and he promised the person that when he was campaigning
that he would not vote for pay raises for lawmakers. He said it was appropriate
for him to donate the salary increase increase.
This year Berkman is giving away $700 to a number of Middletown area organizations.
Legislator Richard Roberts of Port Jervis is also said to donate his salary
increase in the last two years.
