This sounds a little like “….. déjà vu…..all over again”.
I can still remember when the Commissioners granted themselves a huge raise after justifying it with data they had cherry picked and at the same time forgetting to mention they enjoyed much better additional emoluments than the example counties they had cited as justifying their raise.
Unless a survey of wage and benefits is done by an INDEPENDENT third party it is impossible for bias not to be projected in the results.
I have no doubt that employees of the Sheriff’s Department should be considered for a raise, but over 18% all in one jump?
