In 2010, the top 10 highest paid people at Metro made over 4.1 million dollars in salary and benfits. Then they all retired, probably with pensions of over $100,000 a year. doesn't indicate what their job was, but in 2011 the top 10 people were all desk people, and they made over 3.7 million dollars. Gillespie's cronies at the top are making the big bucks. They're just like the people at the Fire Departments and the big shots at the top levels of local governments. They loot the treasuries then want a tax increase on people making the minimum wage. Don't blame the officers on the street. It's the top level desk people who are grossly overpaid.

It's not just the firefighters who are looting the local treasuries. The City Manager of Henderson made over $962,000 in salary and benefits last year. A fire engineer in Clark County made over $532,000, a corrections lieutenant in North Las Vegas made over $525,000, the Fire Chief in Henderson made over $521,000, the Assistant Sheriff for Metro made over $544,000, and a lieutenant made over $507,000. Check out for yourself. Then you'll know why we have 45 kids in a classroom.

Approximately 81 people who work for the Las Vegas Fire Department made over $200,000 last year in salary and benefits. The highest was over $304,000 for a Battalion Chief. The firefighters get paid a lot more than the people who drive the blue and white ambulances who respond to the same medical emergencies. Also, they can retire much younger with a big pension.
