Pasadena : Mayor Gives Pay to Library

Mayor John Crowley has donated his yearly city salary to the Pasadena Public Library Foundation.

Crowley, who makes $50 a week as mayor and councilman, donated his wages during the ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the newly renovated Pasadena Central Library, which underwent a $2-million face-lift that added a new entrance and access for handicapped persons.

Crowley's donation will be used for future restoration work planned for the 60-year-old building.
