response which was whether New Braunfels City Manager Paul Groh man should have been recently granted a pay raise by the City I think in a time when city employees are getting much lessof a raise then Grohman was I think City Council should have thought of being more responsible to the amount they gave I think Grohman also should do like other administrators in our city and refuse such a Knowing that we are in hard eco nomic times and that many people do not even have jobs much less I was the lone city councilmember that voted against the The in my opinion should have been I want to tell you there are a lot of folks out there that are mad Theres a chance here for a city mana ger to show a real leadership role to his own staff and certainly demons trate to the public that he wants to hold the line on spending and return his own raise to the city City Council candidate Joe Kuehler stands to address a question as others in Saturdays two races wait their Seated from left are Paul Fras
