Republican attacks McDermott campaign pay : Hammond News. The funny thing in NWI, especially Lake County is the decision by the voters as to what their Mayor should be compensated. A good example is Hammond, Indiana and their Mayor Tom McDermott. They first decided his salary as mayor. Well that was not enough so they added the salary he makes from being head of the the "Hammond Sanitary District.' Then Tom McDermott, the family thief, decided that was not enough, so he decided to "blackmail" the businesses to give him money for politics so that he could use that money for additional salary. He must make more that Pastrick ever made in East Chicago.
His campaign, political, fund pays his wife, Mrs. McDermott (now judge McDermott) over $35,000 a year, it pays him over $35,000 per year, and it pays for all his costs from credit cards to cell phones and internet. So much money he gets for being Mayor. He is almost making as much as his father does from Whitco Industry. Where are the Feds when you need them? Well he is white and we are now going after white white collar criminals, Mayor and Sheriffs.
