Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens

The mayor of northwest suburban Rosemont is in line for a hefty raise to $260,000 — a 53 percent increase — if he wins re-election next year, the village board decided Wednesday.

Brad Stephens, part of the family that has ruled the tiny town for decades, is running for re-election next April, and the new salary will go into effect the following May, the Daily Herald reports.

“I’m not great at patting myself on the back, but I work hard at what I do,” Stephens said Wednesday.
