MONROE - Aldermen shot down a proposal to raise their pay Tuesday after it was presented by Mayor Louis Armstrong. "While it won't bring in huge incentive to run, it might bring in more names to the ballot," Armstrong said of increasing pay from $3,000 to $4,000 per year. However, council members disagreed with the idea and said from their experience, people do not run for the office based on financial compensation.
