What Does Nutter's Family Think of his Pay Cut?

Mayor Nutter was asked this morning how his wife Lisa reacted his plan to take a ten percent pay cut from his $186,044 salary as part of his massive budget cuts. "[She said], 'you did what?'" Nutter said, joking that he had to sleep in the basement. But then Nutter got serious. "She's been tremendously supportive. She understand that leadership must come from the top," he said.
