I rest my case,on my comment that Don Horlsey B? Slapped Dave Pine on this Whistleblower and ethics presentation. Nov 20th 2012. In my many years of experience working as a victims advocate it not uncommon to see a victim getting closer to their abuser. The great news for all of us in San Mateo County is that somehow a 11% raise / increase is actually a cut according to Don and Dave. And which they didn't mention until today.

My problem is that $300K is a hell of a lot of money for anyone in this position. There's a not-so-virtuous cycle that is going on with executive pay, in government, some non-profits, and most companies in which consultants conduct studies of competitor organization salaries, report that your CEO is falling behind those surveyed, so boards bump up compensation to remain "competitive." No one stops to perform a sanity check to see if such salaries are warranted by the work performed, the income and savings generated, and perhaps most importantly, the equity within the organization's highest and lowest paid workers.
