Re: Nutting lashes out

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.

    Nuff? You and your cohort’s comments speak volumes about the tax leaching pipers you Blindly follow. The 48% Pay increase to El Dorado Officials happened because Harn, and 3 Supervisors met daily at Durango’s Watering hole. If the Auditor and DA were real public servants of the people, they would have spoken up on this type of misinformation. For your information. Ray Nutting was not on the Board of Supervisors at that time. Check it out. Ernie Louis 7/03/2013

    Thank God @Ernie Louis, finally a reasonable and intelligent voice and comment. Geez people, do your research. And specifically start checking into the Auditor and DA. Walking Tall, start looking into all their dirty little secrets if you really want a fair system, because DA and Auditor amongst others are not part of a fair and honest system.

    People need to pay full attention to the whole group who surround Nuttin and especially his campaign crew, they are dirty fish in a sewer pond. Several have been arrested for theft and fraud which seems to run in their circle. All of the what about blank is a focus for another time and is a distraction tool to smoke-screen the already arrested and charged people. There is one way to go after corruption and that is to prosecute after an arrest as in Nuttin's case and he is desperate to blame others for his own actions.

    brother I don't know what you are talking about. Unless you are Ernie Louis. So you didn't say this Nutting person is an honest Politician. OK. So if you don't believe he's honest either, what's your problem?

    Ummm, I don't think Ernie Louis was saying Nutting is an honest politcian, I think he was pointing out some statistics and exactly whom was involved in pay raises, differential and compensation packages. And also, who the supervisors were at the time of the pay raise. If you find out differently then please share your information and statistics.
