Uh, according to the linked piece from WESH-TV, Orlando Channel 4 (which actually has its studios north of the City of Orlando in Winter Park), it's City of Orlando rather than Orange County elected officials who are voting themselves a raise.

I don't have much love lost for the elected officials of either jurisdiction, but Dyer & Co. is a special breed of @#!& #$@*. BTW, does he still have that MAIG representative on the city payroll?

Oops- I knew that. I will fix it. I live in a neighboring county. and yes, the MAIG representative still works there.
