When we got (Nathaniel) Moran for County Judge, it seemed that he was a common sense conservative. However, he quickly fell into the spender mode when he recommended pay raises for some elected officials.
He justified the recommendation by comparing their salaries with similar positions in other counties. Each county is different, so this is not a valid comparison.
These people knew what the salaries were when they ran for the office, so if they don't like it, find another job. There are plenty of others who will do the job for the present salary!
Thank goodness that we have Terry Phillips to challenge these liberal spenders.
