Two months before the city’s mayoral election, Mayor Richard Berry is unveiling a new plan to recruit new police officers.

The plan includes pay raises and special bonuses.

... mayoral candidate Paul Heh said, “what are you going to take away from them after you give them a 62 cents an hour raise?" [question]

Part of Richard Berry’s recruitment and retention plan requires the state legislature to make some changes in the state’s retirement laws. [answer]

e: ...

... a new plan to recruit new police officers [false]
... a deal to change the state’s retirement laws [true]

[short-term pay increase in exchange for long-term retirement worse deal]

... the truth is the opposite of everything they tell you.
