Board of Supervisors give itself a raise

The Riverside County board of supervisors have approved a new salary structure that will give themselves substantial raises.

In a 4-1 vote May 21, the board said yes to a plan that will raise their pay between 19 percent and 58 percent, depending on how much each member is being paid now, according to multiple reports.

Other elected officials will get raises of 27 percent to 29 percent.

Supervisors Chuck Washington, Karen Spiegel, Manuel Perez and Yxstian Gutierrez voted in favor of the pay hikes. Supervisor Kevin Jeffries dissented, and reportedly called the vote “a terrible mistake.”

The board last discussed salaries in late 2022, when it voted 4-0 against a pay hike. The new salary structure establishes a yearly base pay of $190,783 for supervisors.
