An East Sussex County Council leader who voted himself a large pay rise has defended his decision, has told ITV Meridian he is "worth that sort of money".
Conservative councillor Keith Glazier, successfully won the right to boost his income by 37% and will now earn £46,700 a year in allowances.
It comes after the decision was taken last week by county councillors who voted to pass the recommendations, which included a 9% increase for all councillors and a 37% bump in the extra allowance taken by the leader.
Cllr Glazier faces tough criticism from opposing Party councillors for accepting the decision, after seven libraries in the area are facing closure, following an announcement by the Council that it needed to save at least £17 million this year. Under current council plans, a total of £58 million must be saved by 2021.
But he says, the decision was made to boost his earnings following a recommendation by an independent report, that the Council accepted.
Earlier this month, the Council launched an online video campaign called the “Stand Up For East Sussex” initiative, which encouraged residents to sign a petition demanding an urgent intervention over the spending on public services.
Cllr Glazier spoke to ITV Meridian to explain the situation.

Councillors at West Sussex County Council are due to discuss plans over the future of the area's libraries. It comes following the launch of a 12-week public consultation in neighbouring East Sussex, which could see up to a quarter of its libraries closed. The motion is due to be debated on Friday.
Hampshire County Council has an annual budget of almost £2 billion pounds. That money is spent on public services like education, roads, libraries, public health and waste disposal.
So far - since central Government's funding began to be cut in 2008 - the council has saved £340 million from its budget.
Because of the rising cost of adult social care - like services for the elderly - it has increased council tax. Despite that, it says it faces a budget shortfall of £140 million.
We have been reporting for some time now, the extent of the financial challenge that we continue to face. With our revenue support grant from Government soon coming to an end, together with rising inflation and significant increases in the numbers of elderly people, younger adults and children needing care - the pressures are mounting.
Members of the public, for good reasons, tend not to see the children in the care of the County Council, or those on the 'at risk register', but there is no doubt in my mind that they must be our highest priority to protect.
We are limited on the level by which we can increase council tax, and changes to the law would be needed to enable us to introduce or increase charges for some services - even though residents have indicated they would prefer to make contributions for some discretionary services rather than lose them.
The financial outlook remains extremely challenging. It's going to be very difficult indeed to achieve a further £140 million of savings, on top of the £340 million of spending reductions we have had to make since our funding from central Government began to reduce in 2008.
A final decision on where the cuts will be come wil be made by full council on November 2.
