There were some interesting figures put before the
county commissioners Monday in the request by Duplin
Sheriff T. E. Revelle and Register of Deeds Christine
Williams, who requested their salaries be placed on the
county pav plan. These fiaure* show How well Dunlin
taxpayers pav their county employees ? the department
iceds, that is ? tn comparison to other counties. .
.Remember, there are 100 counties in North Carolina. . .
? So. . . .No county or group of counties paid a local health
administrator IV more than the $40,176 paid by
D<jp i-Sampson Two counties paid their sanitary landfill
supervisors more than the $20,223 paid by Duplin. These
were Mecklenburg and Cumberland. Seven counties paid
their local health administrator II more than the $23,337
Duplin paid. Eight counties paid their finance officer more
than the $28,205 paid by Duplin. Eleven counties paid
their emergency services director more than the $18,444
paid by Duplin. So many counties have combined their tax
supervisor and tax collector offices that a comparison is not
practical, since Duplin has not done this. (In Duplin, the
tax collector is paid $11,700 and the tax supervisor,
$18,844). Twenty-five counties paid their Register of
Deeds more than the $21,222 Duplin paid. Thirty counties
paid their sheriff more than the $23,337 paid by Duplin.
Duplin's agricultural agent is paid $30,247 and the school
superintendent $35,927. No comparisons were listed. .,
So, it would seem Duplin County is one of the highest
paying counties in the 100 in North Carolina. The request
from the sheriff and register of deeds asked that the
register of deeds salary range be from a low of $20,623 to a
high of $27,217. . . .And, the sheriff from a low of $22,633
to a high of $21,153. Both the sheriff and the register of
deeds have 30 years of service with Duplin County. By law, .
only the county commissioners can set the salaries of the
two, as they are both elected offices. . .The commissioners
made no decision about the request, except to put it off. .
.The big question seems to be, can, or does seniority
count in an elected office. . .According to the law, unless
it is so advertised 14 days before the filing period, the next
person elected to an office will receive the same pay as the
outgoing person, with longevity and experience having no
bearing. . .The slower is a political one. and it will be
handled politically. . .whichever way the votes lean.. .
When you think the world is all bad, a Veterans Day
parade will change your mind. . .There was the sad clown
? the fellow with his clothes all torn, his umbrella ragged,
his shoes showing holes, his hat in need of repair, and a
sad face with ears, even. . .When he came by, I saw
children who had just fought for a piece of candy thrown
out by one of the passing floats, give the sad clown the
candy. . .1 even heard one say. . .Hey, it's not your fault. .
.That kid was about 30 or so. . .Son-of-a-Gun. ...
