Alameda County Administrator Susan Muranishi paid $400,000 for life
From Mercury News:
County records show the 63-year-old Muranishi receives a $301,000 base salary, $24,000 performance bonus, and $9,000 for serving on the Surplus Property Authority, the San Francisco Chronicle ( http://bit.ly/X5vTYH) reported.
Muranishi, who has worked for Alameda County for 38 years, also gets $24,000 in equity pay to guarantee she makes at least 10 percent more than any other county employee, and $54,000 in longevity pay for working in the county for more than 30 years—as well as an $8,292 car allowance.
Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty says Muranishi is "worth every dime," comparing the job to being CEO of a $2.4 billion corporation with 9,000 employees.
Is it appropriate to compare salaries of top civil servants to top private sector jobs?
