A quick follow-up to last week's decision by the City Council to give City Manager Russell Allen a 5 percent raise.
The vote was not unanimous. It was 6-1 with District D Councilman Thomas Crowder voting no. (Councilman Rodger Koopman was absent and excused from the meeting.)
Fellow architect Ted Van Dyk recently announced that he will run against Crowder in the October election. District D covers southwest Raleigh.
