Did Potter Commissioners Vote Themselves A Raise?

Anonymous said...

Whoa! Did the commissioners vote themselves a raise?!? Where was that news report?

Saturday, January 3, 2009 1:36:00 PM EST

Potter County Commissioner Paul Heimel replies:
No.

In 2006, Commissioners Wingo, Torok and Bowers held a legally required meeting during which they voted to approve 2-percent annual salary increases for the Commissioners, Treasurer, Register/Recorder, Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts, Auditors and Sheriff/Jail Warden.

Those 2-percent raises were effective for 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. They cannot be altered and no one has attempted to alter them.

Under the Pennsylvania County Code, the current Board of Commissioners must meet before the end of 2010 and set the salaries for the same offices as listed above for the 2012-15 term.

Ken & John did a lot of good things for this County while severing as Commissioners.
I wish they were still both in office!

Would have been nice to have Susan, Ken and John as our current commissioners.

It will be very interesting to see if any of the 3 current commissioners will serve another term!

Sounds like a disappointed democrat to me. If you picked wingo and Torok to win in the past election, I would say things are looking good for our republician commissioners.

This is just a case where the Commissioners took care of whoever is in office. I think the people should be the ones that vote to give the raises.

The Commisioners are looking out for #1 (themselves). SO ARE THEIR SALARIES MADE PUBLIC ??

I am a lot more concerned aboout the stater and local governments voting for raises for themselvs...there is a lot more at stake at that tlevel than there is for the 3 commissioners.

To this question. YES it is all public. All elected officials salaries are public. One has to just go and look.. Everything from Commisssioners, treasure, even School Teachers salaries are public.. I am sure some would be suprised to see how much some of them make. Just go look.
