Dave Bing will work for free

This is a week old but new to me: Detroit mayoral candidate Dave Bing pledged today that if elected to office he would not collect a salary. Instead, Bing said he would reallocate the $176,176 annual mayoral salary to hire more officers within the Detroit Police Department. [...] "I've been blessed with two careers," said Bing, a former NBA standout and Detroit businessman. "I'm financially secure and I don't need to go into this office to make money."
