Alderman proposes pay cut for Moss Point mayor

Moss Point Alderman Sherwood Bradford has proposed a policy aimed at Mayor Mario King that would cut his pay if he doesn’t make reforms.

Bradford proposed mandates for Mayor King and the city that says guns can’t be carried in city hall, media releases can’t be sent without board approval, and limiting employee use of city vehicles, among other restrictions.

If Mayor King doesn’t follow the guidelines, he could lose 15 percent of his pay.

The proposal awaits legal review.

Alderman Wayne Lennep suggested King wasn’t solely at fault and proposed board salaries decrease too. That amendment failed.

Lawsuits filed against Mayor King accuse him of discriminating against older workers and harassing someone with a gun.
