Give Carnright the Money
District Attorney Holley Carnright is asking the County legislature for an additional 120k in the 2008 County budget to give his full time staff raises. The current 1.9 million dollar budget Carnright described as bare-bones.
Carnright says these raises are necessary to stay competitive with other Counties. '' I'm afraid we may lose key personal said Carnright.
I agree with D.A. Carnright, you get what you pay for and the County must invest money in the D.A.'s office. You can't expect to attract a talented staff to serve as an A.D.A. for 45k per year, at least not for any lengthy period of time anyway.
I urge the criminal justice committee and the U.C. legislature to approve the request by D.A. Carnright.
