Pastorek turns down $22K raise

State Superintendent of Education Paul Pastorek will not accept a $22,616 pay raise, according to this article by Advocate reporter Will Sentell.

The superintendent is reportedly entitled to the raise because he received a positive evaluation from the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Pastorek told the reporter that he won't accept the raise because, in the current poor economy, "I think I need to set an example for holding the line."

Writes Sentell, "Pastorek’s annual pay package includes a salary of $287,907, a housing allowance of $57,240 and a car allowance of $31,800."
