A Tehama County Supervisors Salary Increase Question, Measure B was on the June 3, 2014 election ballot for voters in Tehama County, California, where it was overwhelmingly defeated.

If approved, this measure would have increased the salaries of each Tehama County Supervisor from the current rate of $1,045 per month to $3,795 per month. This would have resulted in an increase of the annual salary of a county supervisor from $12,540 per year to $45,540 per year. It would have cost the county an additional $165,000 per year to raise the salary of each of the five supervisors. According to the Tehama County Charter, supervisor salaries cannot be increased without voter approval. The last salary adjustment for county supervisors occurred in 1989.[1]

Support

The county supervisors put this measure on the ballot in an effort to bring the salary of Tehama County Supervisors up to the level found in other, similar counties in California. According to Tehama County Chief Administrator Bill Goodwin, the supervisors also intended to make it possible for a more diverse board of supervisors by increasing the salary to make it a financially viable option for younger and less wealthy residents to run for office.[1]
