From the Ask Joe file, we are following up on Monday's question about salaries for Washoe County School Board Trustees.

Ruth Stacy wrote in asking if trustees get paid, and if so, how much do they make?


On Monday, Joe was told by the school district that trustees are paid according to state statute, and that they earn $750 per month, plus $650 in paid benefits.

However, according to the Transparent Nevada website, which tracks public salaries, the numbers are a little higher. Transparent Nevada shows the trustees' salaries range from $10,000 to $11,000 per year which would be closer to $900 a month. The website also shows trustees receive up to $14,000 in benefits, which is about twice what the district reported Monday.

Transparent Nevada said they got their numbers directly from the legal department at the school district, as part of a payroll request. Joe asked the school district for clarification about the discrepancy, but they have not responded.

Discrepancy? No response? I hope you're not suprised here. Once again we have the fox guarding the chickens, and us chickens are the ones that will pay the price for more corruption, discrepancies, no response and just plain lies. Stay tuned TAXPAYERS!
