Dellums breaks promise on 10 percent pay cut
OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- It appears Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums has broken a promise he made last spring to take a 10 percent pay cut to help reduce the city's budget deficit.
Dellums announced last June he would slash his $183,000 a year salary. But, according to our media partner the Oakland Tribune, he has not done it so far.
There is speculation the mayor may have gone back on his promise because he has financial problems, including an IRS lien on his some of this holdings.
Dellums has said he was trying to sell his late mother's house in Oakland to pay off back taxes.
