San Diego City Council members are expected to vote down today a recommended pay raise for themselves and the mayor.
The raises were proposed by the city's Salary Setting Commission and automatically brought before the City Council.
The commission recommended that pay for members of the City Council increase from $75,386 to $125,000, starting July 1. The panel proposed the mayor's pay be raised from $100,464 to $150,000.
City Council President Ben Hueso said Thursday that, considering the city's projected $60 million budget shortfall and the "dire financial situation," he would reject any pay increase.
"It's not the right time," Hueso said.
Hueso, who has announced he is running for an Assembly seat, held a different opinion on the issue of council raises last year.
He was one five City Council members who voted last April to give themselves a raise, but, bowing to mounting public criticism, reversed course and opted to keep salaries stable for another year.
Mayor Jerry Sanders also vetoed the salary hike.
The City Council has not had a raise since 2003.
