I read a post on a fellow blogger's site praising the work of Jessica Feldmark, assistant to the county executive, for her tireless efforts in making this new redevelopment work and it made me remember that I had at one time seen Ms. Feldmark's salary and recalled it to be over six figures. Doing some diligent research in between bench memos (whoops) I found this article from 2004 that made my jaw drop. Government salaries don't go down folks. Think about it this way, in about five years, the exec has put on $10K. Imagine where these other salaries may be. And don't go saying that these are the "county employees" I felt so bad for earlier this week. They're not. These are, with some notable exceptions such as fire, police, and State's Attorney, political home-boys. I said it before, and I'll say it again, this county needs an A-U-D-I-T.

  1. The best thing that could happen is gas prices go to $5/gallon in August, making voters sit up and take note of the outrageous disparity in job security, pensions, and pay of these people.

    Yes, $5. I'd welcome it. Hello Pickens.
