Non-City Income for New York City Council Members

The chart below lists the range of "non-city income" that members of the New York City Council declared in 2004 (the most recent year available). This income is in addition to the $90,000 a year salary each council member earns and any stipends for serving as a chair of the committee or in a leadership position. (Click here for a list of council salaries and stipends).

Each council member is required to fill out a financial disclosure report with the Conflict of Interest Board, listing outside income and its sources. Although council members do not have to disclose the exact amount of outside income earned, they are required to give a range. The categories are $1,000 to under $5,000; $5,000 to under $35,000; $35,000 to under $60,000; $60,000 to under $100,000; $100,000 to under $250,00; $250,000 to under $500,000; $500,000 or more.

Council members who did not declare additional information are not listed. Also there is no information availabe for eight members - Inez E. Dickens, Daniel R. Garodnick, Jessica S. Lappin, Melissa Mark Viverito, Darlene Mealy, Rosie Mendez, James Vacca, and Thomas White, Jr. - who did not take office until January 2006. Some information in the report is illegible and is marked with a "?" in the chart.
