Burrell Ellis has given over 1.5 million dollars in pay raises to his staff. Burke Brennan, county spokesman, alone has received 49,000 dollars per year raise.
How does the make you feel? Burrell has already ordered promotional pay raises be cut in half (10% to 5%), he has cut the upcoming June academy, and he is laying off all our paramedics.
Supposedly, we have over 800 Master Patrol Officers. Only a fraction of those are topped out in pay, even after 20 years of service.
"Dick" Stogner says Burke Brennan and others who received pay raises over 1.5 million dollars are "entitled" to the pay raises.
Exactly what are we entitled too? Ask yourself that when you look at your starting income of 36,852 dollars. Ask yourself that while subtracting your yearly pay from Brennan's pay raise. Ask yourself that question while you're walking up to that car window at 2 in the morning or 2 in the afternoon, looking for a ticket to write to keep your boss off your butt........and to pay for Burrell Ellis' minions pay raises.
Burrell Ellis, along with the commissioners, take us all for suckers. They did this to us in 2010 and we responded. Now they're coming back for a second helping.
And here at the pay raises.
