This Thursday, the Sandoval County Commission will be discussing yet another pay raise for the County Attorney. In mid 2020, the republican majority commission discussed the possible furlough of county staff. Additionally, the Commission determined not to increase the Commissioners’ pay increase due to the “optics” of giving themselves a raise, but now they are happy to give a thirteen-thousand dollar raise to someone who already receives a six-figure salary. This is based on a pre-pandemic salary survey.
Please contact the republican commissioners to tell them that spending their constituents’ money in this way is not acceptable. You can find their contact information at this link. https://www.sandovalcountynm.gov/commission/
Also, if you could please share this with your family, friends, and neighbors, and ask them to keep the County Commission accountable, you could really help get the word out.
