Riverside County supervisors voted unanimously this morning to give raises to upper-level managers who aren’t represented by unions.

Sheriff Stan Sniff said the raises, which pertain to 11 executives in his office, were critical to his ability to attract employees to executive posts and keep his department running.

District Attorney Paul Zellerbach said the raises were a matter of fairness to people who came out of retirement to help him reform his office.

More to come.
