Thank you Kettering residents
for the decision to

For
Kettering Council Improvements
Issue 28: Term Limits
Issue 29: Pay Reform

Both Issues Have Been Endorsed by Former Mayors Chuck Horn, Dick Hartmann and Current Councilman Rob Scott


Issue 28: Term Limits

Council has become a rubber stamp with little innovation.

Since February 2011 they've cast "Aye" votes on every proposed ordinance (1,689 times) without a single "Nay" vote.

Term Limits encourages new candidates to run for office, and assures a periodic infusion of new ideas.

Our proposed Term Limits are similar to what Beavercreek, Fairborn, and the Ohio Legislature have used for years.



Issue 29: Pay Reform

  Current Annual Pay For
  Council Mayor
Kettering $15,922 $23,500
Beavercreek $6,000 $6,000
Huber Heights $3,600 $7,452

Council has often voted themselves annual pay raises during their sitting terms.

Council's budget for salaries is over twice the average of other Dayton suburbs and much higher than Springfield, Beavercreek, Huber Heights, Oakwood, etc.

Our proposal would reset salaries to $8,000/year for city council and $12,000/year for mayor and require public disclosure of future increases before they are voted into law.

Times are tough. Good Stewardship of tax dollars should start with City Council.

Our proposed Charter Amendments will bring Council and Mayoral pay back into alignment with neighboring cities, and encourage new leaders to run for election.
