At the November 8 meeting of the Transportation District of Hampton Roads (i.e. HRT's Board), a proposal was pushed to double the stipend for Commissioners from $50 to $100. Delegate Lionell Spruill, one of Chesapeake's Commissioners, pushed the measure. It will need General Assembly approval. Randy Wright made the motion, Paul Riddick seconded, and it passed.
Kudos to our Commissioners from Virginia Beach: John Uhrin abstained, while Jim Wood voted "No". Personally, while I can see raising the stipend, where does the $100 figure come from? I wish I was getting a 100% pay increase.
