County Executive Leopold Calls for Rejection of Pay Raises Approved by Board of Education

Public hearing requested in issue

- County Executive John R. Leopold today asked the County Council to reject $5.5 million in pay raises approved this week by the Board of Education.

“The actions by the Board of Education contradict promises made by the Superintendent and are inequitable to the County employees, Library staff and Community College employees who will see a reduction in pay through furloughs next year,” County Executive Leopold said. “We have an obligation to share the sacrifices made in this difficult economy equally.”

In a letter to Council Chairman Dick Ladd, the County Executive requested a public hearing on the issue. The Board approved a 1 percent across-the-board salary increase for all employees for Fiscal Year 2012 on June 15. Last year, Superintendent Kevin Maxwell maintained that the increase would affect only Fiscal Year 2011.
