Orange County Legislator Jeffrey Berkman, D-Middletown, contributed his legislative salary increase to local charities last year.

Berkman voted against the pay hike, which boosted lawmakers' salaries by about $1,200 after taxes, and pledged to give it to community groups and projects.

Among the beneficiaries: Interfaith Friendly Visitor's Program; a baseball dugout bench bought by the Middletown Recreation Park for Watts Park; and Monhagan and Twin Towers Middle School class trips to the Holocaust Museum.
