This whole county leadership getting pay raises thing is just outright ridiculous. I am not sure which planet those who voted for it live on but I just wanted to put out some facts: Their raises for one person equal to over two times the amount of national poverty threshold per person. Currently one individual is considered poor if they're making a bit less under 12 K. But, here we are five people getting almost 30 K annual raise.....
Folks like Escobar pride themselves in taking the credit for how County runs, but what folks like her forget is that it's the County employees who do the work in all reality, not her or any of the elected officials. I hope that people will read this and think of this one: I can guarantee you that among thousands of employees within the County offices, there are at least 200 upstanding employees who could have got 1% raise based on their performance and quite truthfully used that raise to live just a bit more comfortably. Current El Paso County median income is a smidge over 40K a year, but they still believe that making 60 K wasn't enough so hey, why not jack it up to 90K?

Such pay raise needs to be halted and put on the November ballot for constituents to vote for or against it. This is not okay at all and our County elected officials within the County of El Paso Commissioner's Court need to know this.
