SMC Supervisors Unanimously Approve Another 11 Percent Increase

Salary increase for John Maltbie brings up the question: why wasn't this issue brought up to the public's attention before it got placed on the agenda?

On December 11th the five supervisors approved an 11 percent raise for John Maltbie.

This brings up several questions about the leadership of our five supervisors — Addrienne Tissier, Carole Groom, Don Horsley, Dave Pine, Rose Jacob Gibson—  including, 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 non necessary raise. This is a perfect example of  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 the Service League of San Mateo County here.

This is where 100 percent of these people think this way.

Is there anything anybody can do about it?

Well, at least we now know where our increased taxes are going. And who can forget the tear-jerking plea of the SMC Supervisors last election: "We have made all of the cuts that are possible and we are now down to bare bones. We simply have NO other choice but to raise your taxes"? Please try and remember this the next time you buy the propaganda from our public officials and vote yourself a tax increase.

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

Order of events: 1. Increase managers' retirement contribution to 50%. 2. Board of Supes vote themselves a 5% pay increase. 3. Controller gets 11% increase. 4. SEIU contract is signed without any increases. 5. "Whistle Blower" mechanism (hard to find and exposes the source) voted by BOS not in need of change 6. Maltbie gets an 11% increase. The corruption goes farther back. Maltbie spiked his pay by 28% 18 months before his first retirement.

Keep on this topic. Employees of the county are afraid to raise their voice. The executive leadership is infamous for retaliation.
