  1. How is a “Pay Study” a needed reform? I read “Pay Study” as “this is how we’ll make it look as though we care about this issue while we evade and kick that can down the road” Meanwhile, the pigs at the trough get to hire some friends or relatives at high “consultant” salaries to perform the “study” thus exacerbating, rather than correcting the problem. Someone needs to make sure that commissioner De La Cruz isn’t related to some of those “consultants”.

    1. Fair enough, but having the information public can only help keep such a pay study honest. We will be updating the salary information.

  2. Wait till the study has been concluded before you complain. If the study appears to be inaccurate, then do so.
