Matt Brown Breaks $200K Salary Cap

The Rhinoceros Times is out with their Annual Salary List  – this week is City Of Greensboro employees. (Promised to be online at the Rhino by June 1, 2007)
Congratulations to Matt Brown.  He received a $26,843 raise this year, that puts his salary at $201,609.  This doesn’t include the various perks of the job (car allowance, cell phones, club memberships, health insurance and much, much more).

To put this in perspective, he makes far less than the Superintendent of the County Schools and a little more than the Grasshoppers’ SPAZ.  He makes $30,000 than his official boss (Mitchell Johnson – Greensboro City Manager); but nearly $75,000 less than the guy who is really calling the shots in Greensboro.

    OUTRAGEOUS !!

    Excuse me, but doesn’t the coliseum lose money every year ? How many people get a T W E N T Y- S I X- T H O U S A N D- D O L L A R pay increase after losing money for their employer year after year ? Who allows this ?

    I promise that if you were to replace Mr. Brown with me that I would make the Coliseum profittable within 3 years and, if not, I would pay back 50% of my salary over the three years. Furthermore, I would work for 1/3 of Mr. Brown’s salary, I would PAY FOR ALL OF MY TICKETS TO EVENTS, I would NOT accept a salary increase unless the coliseum was profittable, I would book events that Greensboro and the surrounding community would support and I would N O T attempt to further swindle taxpayers by campaigning for a swim facility for my buddies.

    Oh yea, why should he (at $200K a year) get a car allowance, a cell phone allowance or any other perk ?

    Let’s get rid of Mr. Brown and any and all of those individuals responsible for giving him the salary increase !

    There- I feel much better.

    Thank You,
    Mark

    You can’t blame Matt for getting the MOST out of his employer. He works for Mitch Johnson – the Greensboro City Manager. Mitch works for the City Council, who are elected by less than 20% of the citizens of Greensboro.

    If you are mad about Matt, call your City Council Person. Vote. Run. Participate. As long as most in the city don’t vote, you will continue to see tax increases and generous salaries.
