STOCKTON - The website "gofundme.com" has a spot for donations that would benefit Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva.
The fund was created after the Stockton City Council voted this week to approve a salary commission recommendation that the mayor's salary be cut by more than $32,000.
The couple starting the fund chooses to remain anonymous, but the leading contributor was happy to explain his participation.
"It's embarrassing to be part of a community that's bullying the mayor. I don't think anyone agrees they'd take a one-third pay cut from a job. We all complain when we get our check and the IRS has taken out a third," Ron Felton said. He's contributed $200 to the Silva fund.
Friday afternoon, the fund was still at $280 donated. The organizer stated a fund goal of $35,000.
