To play devils advocate they have not received a raise in over 12 years and one of the points made was it is getting harder to get qualified people to sit on the board.

Elected public servants. That alone dictates those citizens running and elected are taking less than market average salaries in order to serve the public. This is the same board that disappeared $40 million in Cares Act funding back in August into the Jail Trust. Scumbags.

For those who don’t live in Oklahoma City.
You don’t have a dog in this fight. Why the angry comments?
Here’s your Government politicians misusing public funds. And then giving themselves a raise. That’s THE outrage of Conservatives. That is the Swamp. Yet, since it’s Good Ol GoP politicians, it’s all fine and dandy...it’s hypocrisy, and anger follows it everywhere.

Both Commissioners Brian Maughan and Kevin Calvey, District 3, voted no. Taylor abstained, as he’s leaving office in January.


Seems the one guy with the knowledge of what the salary should be and without the personal benefit that would cloud his judgment chose to abstain from voting.

Don’t know Calvey at all. But he voted against the raise. And the link you attached has a story that appears to me that he was in the right. We should want our law enforcement to work with each other —- not fight each other.
Calvey voted to push the lawsuit till next year. Keep reading it...that legal representation is his own law firm, btw.
