Looks like Byron Brown is getting quite the pay raise at nearly 50%.

The Buffalo Citizens Salary Review board has made its suggestions for the upcoming pay increases that include Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown, the Comptroller and Council members. The Board of Education members will also be getting an increase.

The suggestion received some backlash on social media earlier in the week, but it is important to note that the last pay increase for some of these positions, including mayor was 1998.
