In no particular order.
The county made a math mistake in the announcement? From 6.5% to 9.6%
Um, excuse me - I'm sure the "county spokesperson" was TOLD what to say. So who REALLY made the mistake?
County attorney given a raise to $140,300. considering how much the amotion hearing will cost us and that Woody White is an attorney I would kindly suggest that all attorneys recuse themselves from voting on such things. Did Woody recuse himself?
It is time for THIS commission to look hard at salaries, especially the higher salaries, and consider a cap on them. I know that the county manager position is fraught with all sorts of responsibilities and problems but for a county our size it seems ludicrous that Coudriet is making $175,000 per year. What is more disturbing is the salary increase is one thing but the retirement benny's are now going to cost us all a LOT of money over LONG period of time. This is the REAL danger to giving big salary increases to government officials - the retirement payout is based upon your highest 3 or 5 years of salary.
Woody White should be "amotioned" out of office for fiscal irresponsibility!
