County Councilman Wade Kach is Angling to Give Himself and His Colleagues a 13% Raise When They Retire

By law, retired Baltimore County employees can’t get a COLA (cost of living adjustment) during their first five years of retirement.

Councilman Wade Kach, a 76-year-old, three-term Republican, wants to change that so he and his colleagues won’t have to wait to feather their retirement nest eggs.

The current council cannot approve their own salaries during their term, but they can set council salaries for the next term.
