MAJORITY deputy whip has never been a paid position in Philadelphia City Council, but a bill introduced yesterday would change that.
The bill, introduced by Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. on behalf of Council President Darrell Clarke, would amend a portion of the city code addressing compensation and benefits by giving a salary to the majority deputy whip, beginning in 2016.
City Council's majority deputy whip is Bill Greenlee, who represents the city at-large. The city code does not address the position of majority deputy whip.
According to the ordinance, each Council member is to earn an annual salary of $98,000.
