Navarro Opposes Pay Raise For State Officials


DOVER, DE—In response to the Delaware Compensation Commission’s recommendation for pay raises for top state officials, Delaware Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro issued the following statement:

“I am opposed to these pay raises. Our State is experiencing considerable budgetary and financial issues, including a potential $350 million shortfall. As such, it is not appropriate to consider such a measure. Moreover, it is unfair to the countless hardworking and dedicated state employees who have gone years without significant pay increases. I stand with Governor-elect Carney in pledging not to accept any pay raise if it is offered.”
