The 2017 Tucson preliminary election showed voters were not in favor of Proposition 406.

The proposition would have increased the salary of the Mayor from $42,000 annual to $69,300 annually and city council members from $24,000 annually to $39,600 annually, according to the League of Women Voters of Greater Tucson (LWVGT). 

This would be a 65 percent salary increase.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that Tucson City Council Members are receiving less than the average council in a city the size of Tucson.

Election tolls showed 28 percent of voters for position 406 and 72 percent against the salary raise.
