Your Letters: Department heads didn't campaign on pay hikes
Wadena County has nine elected positions: five county commissioners, county attorney, county sheriff, county recorder and county auditor/treasurer. First, let us dispel the rumor that the county commissioners voted themselves a pay raise. They have not received a pay raise since commissioners Bounds and Miller were elected. Our county commissioners base pay is $13,390 per year. These five people are responsible for managing an $18 million business each year.
