Our county commissioners are trying to use arithmetic to justify the massive pay raises they just gave themselves.
One of our astute readers gave us a chart showing the Texas counties with large populations and how much their commissioners are paid.
If you take their salary and divide it by the number of people in the county you end up with how much they are paid for each person that they are to represent.
Bexar (San Antonio) 6 cents
Dallas 5 cents
Harris (Houston) 4 cents
Tarrant (Fort Worth) 8 cents
El Paso 11 cents
We deserve better
