Allen Mayer was elected to the County Board in 2004 after campaigning against the 50% payraise the County Board had voted itself. Since joining the Peoria County Board Allen Mayer has consistently voted against any and all increase in pay for county elected officials -- including County Board Members. (; Journal Star 5/12/065/22/085/13/10, 5/10/12)  In May 2012 Mayer supported cutting Board Member salaries by 10% as a small, but symbolically important, effort to reduce a potential budget shortfall.
