WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- DC Mayor Vincent Gray tells 9NEWS NOW mistakes were made, so he is reducing the salaries of some staff members, including his chief of staff, the health director, health care finance director, and district attorney.

Their new salaries will be in compliance with the caps set by the DC Council. Other administrators, including the city administrator and the school chancellor, will keep their high salaries which approach $300,000 each per year.

Meanwhile sources close to the mayor confirm that Chief of Staff Gerri Mason Hall is considering turning in her resignation.

Sources say the mayor will accept it if it comes to that. Mayor Gray told 9NEWS NOW on Tuesday it's a frustrating job, he's glad to have her, but the two will sit down and talk. He has made no decision and neither has she, said Gray.

In addition to criticism over staff salaries, Gray has been fielding  criticism over the hiring of some staffer's children in DC agencies and the Sulaimon Brown fiasco.
