print email Source: Editorial: Spencer Township residents seek transparency
Should have done your homework earlier
February 01, 2014 | 01:19 PM

I would like to see a list of each of what all township trustees are paid, along with any employees. Then compare that to the population of the township. I read in the public notices that the Trustee in Harrison Township is making about $11k last year, while Mr. Satterfield has been drawing $17k-18k according to reports. However, Harrison Township has 12,484 population versus Spencer at 1,855. To me, that looks to be out of line. I also think that the people that have recently discovered this should not be patting themselves on the back so much. The Trustee in Spencer seems to have been drawing the highest trustee salary in the county for decades, yet people in the area only started complaining about it when the Trustee made a decision they disagreed with. Where were they in questioning this over the past 20 or 30 years? A report is printed in this newspaper every year. Seems to me that the Trustee there is overpaid, but the residents there let it go, and now there are sour grapes.
