Why did Ben Snow get a $15,000 raise and the rest of the county employes get a few cents an hour?

He ran for the office knowing that, however.

You can thank Rip Templeton and Wayne Poole for that.
The judge objected because he knew what the pay was but Templeton pushed for it.
It could still be stopped because the budget has not been passed but it would take an outpouring on the commissioners to change it.

The budget as filed does not include a salary for Snow, but the judge has 4,500 in it to go on fishing trips. The judge should pay his secretary salary out of Brookwood Construction.

Well the Judge just got back from Austin spending some more tax payers money and every time he goes off to school as he puts it he comes back just as dumb as he was when he left.

Why does the Justice of the Peace, the County Attorney, and County Judge all need full time secretaries at a cost of $25k each including benefits? There is no way they have enough work to justify the expense. Of course, it may be that the elected officials are not there most of the day (or working their side jobs) so they need someone to man the office. Just a thought?

Why does the County budget show salary supplements for the Judge at $15,000 and the Attorney at $21,000 under Revenues but it not reflected in the other parts of the budget?

Does the Judge really need to increase his travel budget during tough times?

Do we really need three people in the Tax office and three more in the Clerks office?

We have the 8th highest county taxes in the state! Need to have an honest look at what is necessary and what it welfare. Need to share and combine resources.

The county judge likes traveling and vacationing at the taxpayer's expense. He also needs his secretary for two reasons. County business AND personel business. You can't expect an important man like him to work, can you?

Again missed an opportunity to take a realistic look at what it takes to run this County. Lets keep running it into the ground.

Disappointed (notice I used the CORRECT spelling), are you saying you agree with the statement you quoted, or you do not agree with the statement?

Who is "running it into the ground?"

I agree with the statement. Taxes 2x of Lamar County. Bloated workforce at the County. Too many elected officials working side jobs.

Well, I agree with you. Walk into the tax ofc and you see them reading books, playing on computers and it's a chore to get off their butts and wait on you. The clerks office is a little better, because they are pleasant, but still mostly sitting around. But we aren't getting our taxes increased and thank God for that. I agree with you I think we can do more with less. Why do we need full time staff in offices where the co attorney and the county judge and the jp are mostly out of the office???

I can sure see why the clerk's office and assessor's office needs who they got, but the JP office and judge office don't need that mother/daughter team. Worthless, IMO.

They work their butts off. The people of this county must have been good with the Assessor's office. They reelected the Assessor, which was the right move.

Obviously, you don't know what working one's butt off is. You are probably sitting your butt in one of those chairs.

The judge quit putting the agenda, minutes, and bills paid on the county web site. Is he trying to hide something?
