In this weak economy, our local government agencies shouldn’t be giving raises to its top officials. Doing so sends a bad message.
Unfortunately, West Las Vegas’ budget includes pay hikes for its associate superintendent and business manager — this during a time when West is set to lay off eight first- or second-year teachers.
Under the budget, the business manager’s annual salary would increase from $70,000 to $90,000 and the associate superintendent’s from $89,000 to $95,000.
