Stevenson is only commissioner to take less

On the St Johns County Board of Commissioners, Historic City News has discovered that only Cyndi Stevenson, District 1, has taken a voluntary pay cut since the enactment of Chapter 2011-158, Laws of Florida, which took effect on July 1 of last year, and provided that each member of a board of county commissioners, clerk of circuit court, sheriff, supervisor of elections, property appraiser, and tax collector was authorized to voluntarily reduce his or her salary rate.

The following County Commissioners, all of whom bemoaned that the county budget had been “pared to the bone”, continue to take their maximum statutorily allowed salaries of $65,703, plus benefits; equal to nearly twice the income of the average workingman and workingwoman in St Johns County:

BRYAN, JOSEPH KENNETH
