Journal covers Restey, living wage

This morning's Ithaca Journal has a brief item about Republican W. David Restey's announcement yesterday that he will be running for the 13th district county legislature seat against Democratic incumbent Martha Robertson.

In county news, Alternatives Federal Credit Union will release an updated set of figures for a living wage in Tompkins County today, based on 2004 data. In 2002, the living wage, "defined as the amount of money a single adult needs to support himself or herself without public assistance, while also being able to gather some savings," was $8.68 per hour for a 40-hour week.
