CoCo Times peels back public officials’ nest eggs on the public dime

Monday, August 22, 2011

Kudos to Thomas Peele and Daniel Willis in the Contra Costa Times for their Sunday takeout imageon Alameda County public officials who are quietly reaping loads of cash into “deferred compensation accounts” on top of their already-generous public pensions. Among the double-dippers singled out and their combined compensation packages: Sheriff Gregory Ahern, $194,298; county administrator Susan Muranishi, $183,695, and district attorney Nancy O’Malley, $103,480.

Add: Numerous counties use deferred compensation accounts, but watchdogs say Alameda County’s is particularly excessive. Kris Vosberg of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association tells the Times: “It borders on looting the public treasury.”

Noted: The most secretive of all counties the reporters looked at? San Francisco, which refused to release its deferred compensation or pension data.
