What are they thinking?
Every school and governmental entity around is looking to control spending by consolidating their services. Yet, this bunch of irresponsible legislative morons votes to spend all this money on more government by creating another department. Don't they understand that taxpayers want less government---not more? Go back 20 years to the 1990 census. The population of Lewis County then was approximately the same as it is now. At that time, department heads did their own hiring. It worked then and it still works today. We just don't need to spend thousands more to give Tim Ryan a fatter salary to head up a human resources department. If Tim Ryan has enough additional time in his current position to take on this additional work, then obviously he has not been very busy. Hence, one would have to assume that he has been overpaid. Every one of these clowns in the county legislature needs to be replaced in the next election. They are not serving in the public interest.

By the way, accoding to "see through NY", Mr. Ryan's salary last year was already $96,771.

If I am not mistaken, I believe that is already more than other department heads .....without adding on another $23,000 for these duties. If he has time for this, in addition to his current duties, he hasn't been very busy! Just another example of a LCGH salary that is twice what it should be.

The head of the hospital is getting much more than the former Rapperport. Yes I mean Rapperport. The hospital chief is getting more than $225,000. Let's replace all the legislators in November. See you in November.

As for Mr. Ryan he is not even living in Lewis County. Just another Rapperport that is raping Lewis County citizens of their hard earned dollars.$100,000 plus is ridiculous. Whjo is looking out for the taxpayers. See you in November.
