One Lubbock County Commissioner has chosen to reduce his salary.
According to a report from KCBD-TV in Lubbock, Commissioner Jason Corley signed an affidavit this week, reducing his salary to $57,600 from the approved rate of $79,985. The reduction comes as Corley criticized the Commission’s decision to increase their own salaries in 2014.
Additionally, Commissioner Chad Seay told the television station that he plans to keep a $4,800 stipend for precinct travel expenses, instead of taking the full salary. Seay also reportedly plans to control some money in a separate account, and make donations to Lubbock charities.
