California Compensation Calamity


It's good to be the Alameda County administrator, on San Francisco Bay, south of Oakland. In March, The San Francisco Chronicle revealed Susan Muranishi somehow negotiated a contract that pays her $301,000 a year, plus "equity pay" of $24,000 a year, so that she makes at least 10 percent more than the next highest paid official, plus "longevity" pay of $54,000 a year, plus a car allowance — and that she'll be paid that total amount every year as her pension for life (in addition to a private pension of $46,000 a year the county purchased for her).
