All five members of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors have now declined a two percent pay increase as prescribed by Charter Measure P.

A good move on their part considering the county budget deficit, their current benefits package, and demands the county will be placing on employees later this spring.

However all four county-wide elected officials, who are reportedly still simmering over cuts to their benefit packages, scooped up a four percent pay boost as prescribed by Charter Measure K.

Here is the current salary levels.
