OC Board of Supervisors need a raise?

Ever since the April 11th 2006 election in the LA County City of Vernon I have been awaiting the outcome of their city council election. They have been stonewalling the results and refused to count the votes until just recently. Today’s LA Times sheds some light that is worth commenting on.

In Orange County we have five supervisors responsible for a county covering 789 square miles and being responsible for serving three million residents. For the sake of this discussion let’s say their base compensation is around $115,000 per year.

In today’s Times it reports that Bruce Malkenhorst Sr., Vernon city administrator “earned more than $600,000 a year for running a city with less than 100 residents.” Please note that the City of Vernon is only five square miles.
The big question for my friend Jack Dean of Pension Tsunami. Does this compensation include a key man pension obligation?

Please. Let’s not try to benchmark Vernon’s compensation against our County and give any Supervisor a raise. That would be out of character for Conservatives in Orange County. And lastly. Supervisor’s elect John Moorlach and Pat Bates did not put me up to issuing this post.Larry gilbert
