Detroit consultant made $280K a year, plus flights, hotels

When it comes to salaries being paid at Detroit City Hall, Larry A. King is, well, king.

At a rate of $175 per hour, the little-known human resources consultant from Washington, D.C., has made nearly $280,000 a year much more than salaries paid to Mayor Mike Duggan, who makes $166,487, or any of his appointees.

On top of annual earnings that exceed the salary of any city job, Detroit has reimbursed King for $65,724 in expenses for frequent trips to work in Detroit from his home in Washington for two years.

The expenses include 69 round-trip flights and 226 hotel nights in Detroit, according to records obtained by the Free Press through the Freedom of Information Act. Last summer, King began receiving a $56 per diem for days he worked in Detroit. The per diem later was changed to $54.

1. Mayor gets elected and hires consultant at higher pay rate.

I'd be looking into campaign donations. Why not just elect the consultant if you can't do the job in the first place?
