County treasurer, assessor get raises
Why do I have a problem with this?
1) They knew what the salary was when we elected them
2) I don’t care what these other counties pay their elected officials. Apparently it’s too much, so why must we take the fiscal fall and do a fiscally stupid thing??
This is part of why we are in such a fiscal mess. Everyone wants to be paid what the next guy is making. Maybe if our dear bureaucrats would just learn to say “NO” to increasing the wages and benefits of not only fellow bureaucrats, but also their own employees, we wouldn’t be in such a mess. Bureaucrats have shown that they have either forgotten where the money comes from, or just doesn’t care anymore.
