When Will DRPA CEO Get $40K Raise?

Delaware River Port Authority commissioners have postponed a nearly $40,000 pay raise for the agency's CEO.

Members on Wednesday took the action because the labor committee had not first approved the 25 percent raise for John Hanson. A vote could take place next month.

Hanson was earning $180,000 as chief financial officer when he became CEO in 2014. The increase to $219,474 would bring his salary up to par with his predecessor.

The agency's nearly 600 unionized employees have been working without contracts for four years.

The authority oversees four bridges over the Delaware River between Pennsylvania and New Jersey and operates the PATCO transit line between Camden County, New Jersey, and Philadelphia.
