SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane Mayor David Condon says he’ll turn down a $7,000 raise in the proposed city budget that would have increased his pay to nearly $180,000 a year.

Condon defended the pay raise last week as a matter determined by the city charter.

The Spokesman-Review reports (https://bit.ly/1qBLFEF ) he changed his mind Wednesday under public pressure and City Council criticism.

Condon says it’s an opportunity to discuss the cost of government and accountability.
