Robert Bentley was first elected Governor for the state of Alabama in 2010 and was sworn in on January 17, 2011.  During Robert Bentley’s campaign for Governor, Bentley told people he would not take a salary until the state of Alabama returned to full employment, as of April 15, 2014 tax records show Governor Robert Bentley has kept his promise not to take a salary.

This is the statement al.com published in an article written on April 16, 2015: Bentley said during the 2010 election that he would not accept the $121,000 annual salary until the state returned to “full employment” — a level he defined as a 5.2 percent unemployment rate. The state’s unemployment rate was 5.8 percent in February.

Also during the first campaign of Robert Bentley for the office of Governor, Bentley promised no new taxes and to oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes; Bentley even signed the No New Taxes Pledge by the Americans for Tax Reform.
