Suggests story on primary election, cutbacks at offices

Would like to know how many county jobs pay only minimum wage

Stephanie Antle writes:
Just wanted to suggest a story about the results of the primary election. I know of several people quiting or cutting back to part time because of the election results (at the jail). I am curious as to the other county offices that are doing the same because of the election. Has this county ever considered making requirements for these elected positions? (At least some experience in the job they are seeking to be elected in?) How many of our county jobs pay minimum wage! Just curious and I know others are as well. - Stephanie Antle
Thanks, Stephanie Antle for the suggestion, a good one. If we're not able to do the story, perhaps readers will contribute comments in a civil conversation on CM. - EW
