Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley said he’s willing to save the state $150,000 by foregoing a salary.
If elected the Greenwich millionaire says he would lead by example by eliminating his own salary. The pledge is just one of many Foley made Wednesday in his publication: A Plan Forward for Connecticut.
“Our state taxes are way too high a burden on working families and must be brought down,” Foley said in the policy statement.
The last time the governor’s salary was increased was in 2003. At that time it went from $78,000 to $150,000.
