Web question of the week

Should lawmakers and state officials accept pay raises they were automatically granted at the beginning of the year? The state Constitution provides for raises for top elected officials that are tied to changes in the state's median household income. Gov. Charlie Baker in December certified a 6.46% increase for lawmakers and a 4.89% raise for constitutional officers. Most top elected officials and a handful of lawmakers have said they won't accept the extra momney. Other lawmakers say they'll take the money and give it to charity. What do you think they should do?
