RPV's City Manager gets paid more than 9 percent more than Members of
Congress and she is responsible for approximately 6 percent of the population.
RPV's City Manager is paid 6 percent more than the Governor of New York
and she is responsible for 0.2 percent of the population.
RPV's City Manager is paid 8 percent less than the Governor of
California and she is responsible for 0.1 percent of the population.
I would say, by that comparison, she is WAY overpaid. One ought to be
able to find a competent city manager for less money.
Jerome Stocks has proposed giving Encinitas City Manager Cotton a 10% raise.
The 10 percent increase was proposed by City Manager Phil Cotton. The last pay adjustment for the part-time council positions was in 2008.
The council also will consider giving Cotton an 11 percent raise, which would bring his compensation, including wages and deferred compensation, to $242,640. His last raise was in May 2007.
Stocks also gave SANDAG exdirector a nice raise too.
From the UT: Gary Gallegos, executive director of the San Diego Association of Governments, would see his $240,000 annual base salary grow by $50,000 over five years under a recommendation due to reach the agency’s board of directors tomorrow.
