Views from the Linn County Auditor: Weigh in on my salary

Excerpted from this post at Views from the Linn County Auditor

One week from tomorrow, i.e., at 4pm, Tuesday, February 3rd, the Linn
County Compensation Board will meet at Westdale Mall. The purpose of
the meeting is to determine the salaries of Linn County's ten elected
officials, i.e., the five supervisors, the auditor, treasurer,
sheriff, recorder, and county attorney. The eligibility requirements
for these officials are remarkable when compared to the private
sector. You must be an eligible elector, i.e., 18 years of age, a US
citizen, and reside in Linn County -- except supervisors must reside
in the district which elects them. The county attorney must be
admitted to the bar, which means s/he graduated from law school and
passed the bar exam. The sheriff must be a certified peace officer or
obtain certification within one year of being elected. Remarkably
simple.
