BOARD OF ELECTIONS STICKING TAX PAYERS AGAIN
Leave it to the Putnam County Board of Elections to stick it to the tax payers and rub it in the faces of other county employees and elected officials.
With the tax payers in our county suffering from the current economic situation, we tighten our belts, pinch pennies, learn to do without, endure the pain of pay cuts and increased health care expenses, and even job losses.
Our region is hovering around 10-12% unemployment. Our county commissioners and other elected officials have put a 3 year freeze on county employee pay raises and other elected officials have looked everywhere in attempts to save this county money from cutting hours to shrinking staffs to eliminating judges.
And what does our glorious board of elections do during these hard, difficult times while so many of us are sacrificing to make ends meet?
They give their director and deputy director raises.
Director $18.68 now $19.05 an hour: Deputy Director $17.31 now $18.38 an hour {Public Record}
The deputy director’s raise was over 6%! Unbelievable! What exactly have these two done to warrant such pay increases during this great recession?
Voter turn out for the last primary election in May shattered the prior record low for our county. Putnam County used to consistently lead in voter turn out. Today, we are the 7th worst in the state, 81 out of 88 counties.
Perhaps their pay increase is an A+ reward for all the bullying the office does to the people disagreeing with how the board operates.
Business must be booming at the board of elections. Where are they getting their money?
