Connolly Rails on Boston Redevelopment Authority and Menino

Boston City Councilor and mayoral candidate John Connolly had some harsh words for the Boston Redevelopment Authority and outgoing Mayor Thomas Menino.

“Although we have thrived from a development perspective, we are trapped in a system that puts the focus on who you know rather than the merit of your project,” Connolly said at a candidates forum, according to the Boston Herald. “That’s what we need to break and that’s the transparency — we need transparent decision-making within the BRA.”

Connolly made the comments during a development-oriented candidates’ forum hosted by the Boston Society of Architects on Wednesday morning.

Salary Increase for Boston Redevelopment Authority Employees

Boston Redevelopment Authority Director Peter Meade (pictured with Mayor Thomas Menino) is one of nine senior staff members who did not receive raises as part of a cost-of-living increase approved recently by the BRA. The raise—the agency's first in five years—puts eight additional employees over the $  100,000 salary mark, for a total of 34 BRA employees who make six digits.

Boston Redevelopment Authority staffers will receive raises for the first time in five years, the Boston Herald reported this week.

With a budget separate from the city’s budget, the BRA recently approved 3 percent raises for all employees except for nine senior staff members, including Director Peter Meade and Chief Planner Kairos Shen.

The increase puts eight staff members above the $ 100,000 salary level, for a total of 34 BRA employees who make six digits, according to the Herald.

BRA spokeswoman Susan Elsbree told the newspaper that the raises represented a cost of living increase.

BRA employees have worked without raises since 2008 and even received a pay cut one year, in 2009, the Herald reported.

The BRA employs 207 people today—a drop from 2009 when the agency had 268 workers on the payroll.
