Haystacks Calhoun submitted the following:

The resolution below was passed at the 11 June 2009 Freeholders meeting (see the 11 June minutes online). Mr. Magazzu  has stated repeatedly that no county worker should make more than $75,000. However, the salary range for this “confidential assistant” goes to $100,000. Isn’t it hypocritical of Mr. Magazzu to vote for a salary range that goes higher than the $75,000 he is always talking about? Also why does the Freeholder Board need a confidential assistant? I thought government was supposed to be an open process?

Apologies in advance if this curious resolution has already been posted at MW.

    I guess the salary is $33,000 if the assistant assists anyone but Magazzu and $100,000 if the poor assistant reports to Magazzu – Not sure if $100,000 is enough to put up with Lou’s crap.

    And you wonder why your taxes are so high. One man making $100,000.00 annually to make copies and open mail for lou.

    Where are the Independents and the Republicans on this issue. If elected, will they eliminate this unnecessary position? Will they eliminate other deadwood from the county payroll? I know you guys read this, so… what do you say?
