San Mateo County Supervisors do it again

Original post made by Michael Stogner, another community, on Dec 7, 2012

They are giving a close friend a raise when we don't even know if he asked for it. So the question is why? There's no public input and only one newspaper wrote about it so far. Currently the county manager salary cap is $270,000. He will be getting a 11% raise. And you might ask how did they come to this 11% figure? The county used a survey which included Michael Scanlon annual salary of $356,857 as Sam trans general manager. He is also the board president of Service League of San Mateo county. What's missing from the survey process is the simple question is there anybody in the United States of America with the qualifications to be a county manager that would be willing to take this position for a 10% DECREASE in salary. If you are opposed to this idea now is the time to send a email to your supervisors but they are just going to approve this anyways. That's why I'm not reccomending you go in person to speak it will just be a waste of time.
