San Mateo County Supervisors Unanimously Approved Another 11% increase

Pay increase

On Dec. 11th, the five Supervisors approved a 11% raise for John Maltbie.

This brings up several questions about the leadership of our five supervisors. Why wasn't this issue brought up to the public's attention before it got placed on the agenda?

The model used by the human resources department was flawed, and the supervisors knew the model was flawed, and still went on and approved this unnecessary raise. This is a perfect example of a very small group of people who have no concern for the general population of San Mateo County.

For those of you who are thinking, "who in there right mind would approve this unnecessary salary increase?" you don't have to look very far. This mindset can be found at Service League of San Mateo County. This is where 100% of these people think this way.

Cliff, Now that we (finally) have by-district elections come 2016, maybe there's some hope there.

While an 11% raise for one person isn't a lot of money with regard to the entire county budget, it's a pretty poor decision to make. The county has fired over 500 people in the last two fiscal years, all under the justification that it is broke. When that many rank and file workers can be let go in the name of austerity one has to be pretty shameless to justify a huge raise for upper management workers who, let's be frank, do not need it.

This is the 2nd 11% raise in 9 months the first was for the appointed controller, and don't forget that is on top of giving the Sheriff Deputies a 3% increase while holding other employees off. We can thank Don Horsley, Carole Groom and Adrienne Tissier for this behavior.

Great news the 11% raise/increase is in reality a cut according to Supervisor Don Horsley. http://www.almanacnews.com/news/show_story.php?id=12720
