So let me get this right. Our economy has taken a nose dive and the quality of services provided by the county continues to decline, yet County Executive Scott Walker wants to give his chief of staff a 26% pay raise:
Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker wants a 26% pay raise for his chief of staff, former Ald. Tom Nardelli, while bypassing traditional County Board approval in quietly issuing large pay raises over the summer to several other top aides.
Nardelli would get the biggest pay increase of top-tier county officials, a nearly $20,000 raise to $95,000 a year. Seven county administrators also scored increases of up to 12.5%.
What I’d love to know is what Tom Nardelli’s done to deserve a 26% pay raise. After all, unless I’m mistaken, most rank and file county workers get a one or two percent raise every year, so what’s Tom Nardelli done to deserve a whopping 26% boost in his salary?
