Monday, Feb. 25, 2008|So, after 26 years working in law enforcement (and labor union organizing), our county sheriffs’ union president Jim Duffy leaves law enforcement to be Supervisor Ron Roberts’ chief of staff. Like most public employees, he’s learned how to legally game the system.
When Duffy reaches age 50 (if he’s not that age already), he will start receiving a sheriff’s pension exceeding 78 percent of his highest salary for the rest of his life, plus modified annual COL increases. Sensibly, Duffy now goes and gets another county job — this one paying a fat six figure income. To top it off, I believe that he now starts another separate pension plan for himself.
Life is good when you are a public “servant.”
