The commissioners have decided to lower the Assistant District Attorneys salary from the former amount paid to the Assistant DA, well that’s great as now the District Attorney has filed a lawsuit to change the salary back. Do the commissioners in Gilmer ever think before they do? Now whatever the outcome, thousands will be spent in resolving this situation. And guess what, we the taxpayers will all pay for this stupidity. For the DA, don’t you really have something better to do like drug cases, etc., instead of spending your time on this? I personally don’t agree with what the commissioners have done. But, everyone is making great headlines in the newspapers and on t.v. in getting their names out, but many people think this is all pretty stupid.

Why don’t the commissioners lower their salaries and lead by example, as we are clearly not getting anything of value from their work? They are costing the taxpayers money and our area is in a recession with the rest of the Country.

The County Judge, Dean Fowler, is getting paid much more than the Assistant District Attorney and his position does not require that a law degree, so I find it interesting that a person working in a position requiring a law degree, an Assistant District Attorney, would get paid much less than the "County Judge." The County Judge in Gilmer could be "Bubba" if he would run and become elected. Why doesn’t Gilmer equate the job responsibilities, educational requirements, etc. with pay?

Come on Commissioners, start thinking instead of constantly being the laughing stock in the press and to the DA please try to focus on more important matters. People can all accept what the position pays or resign from the position and go somewhere else to work. That is what everyone else in a non-elected position would do. Resolve issues, save the taxpayers money, and keep your names out of the headlines, as when you are in the headlines it is usually not good.
