EDITOR: Supervisor Nutting made an appropriate observation in his article: That the auditor was overpaid.
Ray was correct that the compensation package, salary and benefits, in excess of $200,000 is excessive. (A CPA differential? One would expect that to be a necessity for the position.) For that matter, the salaries and benefits for most of the county’s upper management are excessive when compared to larger and more diverse public entities.
The irony is that, in most cases including the auditor’s, Ray approved these excessive compensation packages during his long tenure as Supervisor.
