Venice mayor to give wages to charity

Luigi Brugnaro has accumulated 400 euros in back pay

(ANSA) - VENICE, JUN 30 - Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro said Tuesday he will give all the wages he has been paid since 2015, which he has not yet taken, to dozens of charity projects.
    Centre-right official Brugnaro said the accumulated back pay of some 400,000 euros would go to around 60 social projects.
    "I have been mayor often working 15-16 hours a day, but I've always said I would never take a single euro of public money, The only thing I get from the town council is my coffee".
