Cheri Potter Hired As Potter Commissioners' Executive Secretary

Potter County Commissioners Hire Executive Secretary
Gerri Miller.com
During the February 10 meeting, the Potter County Commissioners voted to hire Cheri Potter as their executive secretary at an annual salary of $27,000 effective February 14.

Potter replaces Judy Snyder who was appointed Fiscal Director to succeed Kathy Majot who was appointed Chief Clerk upon the resignation in December of Chief Clerk Todd Brown.

Snyder replaced Lucinda Weakland Green who resigned to become the Training Director for the Potter County Department of Emergency Services last fall.

The commissioners said they were pleased with the number and caliber of applicants and said they are convinced they have the right team in place to move forward.

In other personnel action, upon his recommendation, the board voted to appoint chairman Doug Morley as Tax Claim Director mainly for document signing purposes until a permanent appointment can be made. The position has been vacant since the departure of Todd Brown.

The board also approved the hire of James Douglas as a part-time van driver at the rate of $9.17 per hour and Dan Counts as a part-time van driver at the rate of $8.82 per hour.

$27,000? I seriously hope that is a part-time job.

I work for the county for
$17,000.00 per year, full time.

We have benefits.

I think they call it economically distressed.

1:44, I was thinking the same thing when I read this. Is this part-time? I know the cost of living up there is low but wow! How can someone live on that? Pa. has the 3rd highest unemployment compensation rate in the country. Most people out of work are receiving $558 per week which is $29,000 annually. Many people in rural areas get upset about people "freeloading" on welfare. With full-time salaries like this it's no wonder. If pride isn't a factor then why not go on welfare? My wife and I had a 2010 combined income of $167,000 and we live in a townhouse and drive 2001 vehicles.

This woman is married to a full time state employee, I am sure she is being well compensated for the duties she will have to preform at the rate of 27,000.00 @ year.

So I am sure they will have a nice combined income at years end as well as good benefit packages.

9:18am, would your name happen to be Ed Rendell?

There's a method to these commissioners hiring practices. It's called "scratch my back and I'll scratch yours." Dan Counts? Would this be the retired State Trooper? Looks like another one wanting to collecgt two pensions. County employees get benefits that you wouldn't believe - so for the lack of a high paying job - they certainly make up for it with the benefits.

I have known Dan Counts a long time and in my wildest dreams I could never imagine him scratching the commissioners backs to get an $8 an hour part time job. Now that's just ridiculous. First they get crap for paying too much and raising employees pay by the obscene rate of 2 percent (that is sarcasm) and now they get crap for paying too little. Somebody out there really has an ax to grind.

To 12:47...what her husband makes is irrelevant. Would you like your spouse's salary subtracted from your salary????? Would this be an acceptable excuse for your daughter or wife to be paid less than someone else doing the same job? Get a grip. The newest chief clerk is also married but it didn't affect her pay. Pay is supposed to be based on the work you do, not if you're married or how many kids you have. Crap like that makes it real hard for anyone to get equal pay for equal work. If you do your job and do it well, you should get paid accordingly. Marital status not only has nothing to do with it, quite frankly it's none of your employer's business unless it interferes with the performance of your job. Just another lawsuit waiting to happen - like the county needs those.

9:18.....you are out of your mind. A combined income of $167,000 !! That is more than a good bit of money.....anywhere in PA. You must have some terrible spending habbits, or think quite highly of yourself. The median income in McKean and Potter County is listed as $40,000....and I think that is

Is that because all the blue collar jobs are gone?

I only make a little over $25,000 full-time and I still have to put gas in the car @ ovee $3 a gal. I know I work harder than most county workers--where is my pay raise or COLA?????????????????????? Or even better benefits????????????

$40,000 is household median income from 2000. Meaning, in most cases, two wage earners who have probably seen their real wages decline since then.
