Salary protest pays off for 3 county officials

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Three county officials will get a pay raise after all, not because the County Commissioners budgeted for it, but because a grievance panel thought it was the right thing to do.

Lubbock County Constables Carroll Thomas, Ronnie Vasquez and Joe Pinson asked for a yearly salary of $45,000, which is nearly a $10,000 increase.

The grievance panel approved a raise of just more than $4,500.  So now, the constables' salaries will jump to a little more than $40,000.  More protests by other officials are on tap for next week.
