The two most recent columns by political correspondent Dick Spotswood have been especially revealing commentaries about compensation of our local public employees, and you deserve a spot to contribute your own comments.
In the July 15 piece, Spotswood goes over the list of best-compensated employees of public agencies in Marin, zeroing in on the package earned by Deputy Chief Eric Nickel at the top of the list. Eight of the top 10 highest remunerated public employees are firefighters, he writes, including Kentfield Fire Protection District's Chief Paul Smith.
In the July 8 piece, Spotswood writes about how Gov. Jerry Brown's planned reforms for public employee retirement compensation — including the elimination of "double dipping" — is being handled by those running for a state Assembly seat.
