Lubbock County Elected Officials Get a Pay Raise

All elected officials in Lubbock County will get a pay raise next year. Monday, County Commissioners voted for a $1,000 raise for 22 employees. Commissioners say the raise is in response to a salary study where Lubbock salaries were matched against elected officials from eleven counties of comparable size.

For example, Lubbock County Commissioners currently make $51,000 a year to serve a county of 242, 628 residents. Galveston County is slightly larger than Lubbock with more than 250, 000 residents, but their commissioners make $64, 296. Meanwhile, ear Waco, in a county slighter smaller than Lubbock with a little over 213,00 residents, McLennon County Commissioners still make more than Lubbock commissioners. They make just over $64,000.
