TRENTON - Trenton Mayor Tony Mack showed up to a packed city council meeting tonight and fielded questions aout money, himself, and his future in the state's capital city.

Among other issues, the Trenton City Council considered a measure to cut Mack's salary in half.

The cut would bring his salary from $126,00 to $60,000.

The Trenton mayor was released on $150,000 bond following his arrest over federal corruption charges last month.

Mack gave as much as he got this evening. The mayor reminded the council that they act and advocate for residents of Trenton, not the mayor.
