The rallying cry for Evansville republicans this election year has been "sewers before stadium." Now at least one of those republicans may be changing the theme to "sewers before salary". At-large council hopeful Andrew Smith says if elected he will give up his salary during his first year in office. And, have that money directed to the flood victims. A city councilman is paid about 20-thousand dollars a year, and Smith admits that money is only a drop in the bucket compared to the 700 million dollars needed to solve the problem. As politically appealing as the offer may sound, several years ago a handful of Evansville Vanderburgh School Board candidates made the offer to work for free if elected. None of them won.
