Who gets a 10% pay raise?

Those same commissioners didn't give employees a pay raise.

I agree with the Real Goose Busted!

Shame on Steve Harrelson, Duff and Franke

I'm sure if Hunter hadn't obtained the emails, commissioners were probably going to drag it out until everyone forgot about it. As Steve Harrelson wrote he didn't want it to be discussed in a public forum issue. I read that underpaid and overworked Bob Franke was not going to be attending the workshop but he got paid anyway I bet.

Another thing, what makes commission so special that they voted themselves an automatic 10% pay raise just like Congress.

Who gets a yearly 10% pay raise in private business or public?

Does the governor, Randy McNally or Jimmy Matlock get a yearly 10% pay raise??? Commission didn't vote for pay raises for county employees, what nerve.
HellOOO

Well I think its like this. They dont get a 10% raise in Their (already too high) salary! Their pay is based on the Mayor's. salary. They are always paid 10% of whatever the Mayor is paid. If her salary goes up their salary goes up. Another conflict of interest since they decide the Mayor's salary.

I have cable tv and often times I surf the channels and I see a little bit of TV-3.

When I see commission on tv3, I always wonder how much time they actually spend as commissioners or city council. They often seemed uninformed and they don't want to discuss anything in public which makes me think that they are probably pcommunitang by EMAIL or some other way maybe texting or phone.

Come on 10% pay raise yearly tied to the county mayor's salary. What does she do anyway? There's another uninformed deer in the headlight person.
