County raises

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

Ed I’m read­ing the ar­ti­cle in the pa­per to­day about Brian Hughes and the Mercer County Ex­ec­u­tive putting him­self in for a 4% raise. I just want to say I think they’re grossly un­der­es­ti­mat­ing and what they’re worth. I mean isn’t a Brian Hughes the per­son that over­seen all the de­ba­cle that hap­pened in Mercer County parks with Ban­non? I mean that must have cost the taxpayers tens of mil­lions of dol­lars just the lawyers in all them court cases that are go­ing on. So 4% I mean, come on guys, jeez, let’s put your­self in for six, seven, eight per­cent. I mean you’re worth it. You’re not mak­ing enough at $170,000. Come on guys.
