Brian Garnett not only harrasses his staff, he allowed a weapon into a prison facility and a deputy warden got blamed and he lied during the investigation. So, Mr. Lender, do you think him lying to the Courant or covering up messes or blaming the York prison for bad directives is such a big deal? Thats an every day occurence to us. He is a high paid scum bag along with plenty of others in these state agencies that do nothing to earn a paycheck but harrass staff and lie.
That's what I like,the inside dope. It's just too bad that they all are truly unaccountable for any of their actions.

If I mistakeningly put $580 in my pocket instead of the safe,I'm sure my boss would say that's OK just put it in whenever you feel like it.

$110K a year for a spokesperson? What the heck is going on? Of course since the drunk is a Democrat, she gets special treatment. Where are all the upset Rowland critics complaining about this miscarriage of justice? The boozer should have been locked up with no visitors. Shame on Connecticut for paying such high wages to a glorified secretary.

Jon Lender's new favorite adjective:$xx,xxx-per-year ". Used ad nauseum. Apparently the editor was asleep.
How about signing your work, "$60,000 per year reporter Jon Lender." Put it on your business card. Have your S.O. introduce you that way at parties.
And if you think it's so important that we know what each individual public employees makes, then why limit it to base salary? We all know the big benefits that state employees get, why not add the value of those in too? You could even throw a little chart in on the side.
I'm glad Lender includes salaries in his stories these days. It enlightens courant readers as to how out-of-control our state employee salaries really are. Again, the sweetheart deals that the state employee unions have cut for their members is one of the single, biggest reasons we are in the bind we're in. Add to that the waste and fraud Lender has exposed, and I think what he's publishing is actually useful. We only used to read about stuff like this in the JI. You go, Jon!

Women Commando,

Guess who else votes on employees salaries? The legislature and Governor. Why blame the Union? They are just doing their jobs. Why do you erase my comments? If state workers have it so easy, then why haven't you applied for a job?

Garnett is not in a Union, but deserves double of what he makes.

I agree, Brian Garnett is worth at least $400,000. He is the glue that holds DOC together.

Jessie Stratton's new job after four months in the drunk tank involves lobbying for the new "bottle" bill - that's rich.
