County Executive Steve McLaughlin Gets $20K Raise And People Protest

In the last week of December 2021, the Republican majority county legislature approved a $20K pay raise for Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin. This is 18% more than he currently makes. The raise happened just three weeks after he was arrested and indicted on felony charges related to campaign finances.

The Justice Center of Rensselaer County and Rensselaer County Women for Change held a press conference outside the County Office Building in Troy on December 24, 2021. Hudson Mohawk Magazine’s Elizabeth Press was there. This segment starts with Democratic Legislator and Minority Leader Peter Grimm.
