Yet another good find from The Resource Shelf.
Oregon Live Reports on the new director at Multnomah County Public. Molly Raphael will be making $138,000 a year -- a move that will make her the county's highest paid department director when she begins work in November.
By comparison, Raphael will make $33,000 more annually than her predecessor, Ginnie Cooper, and $25,000 more than the person running the Human Services department.
Raphael, now the top librarian in Washington, D.C., and earning $121,000 a year, also will make more than Portland's chief administrative officer, who oversees a budget nearly four times that of the library and has 100 more employees. Only Portland Police Chief Mark Kroeker and four other county officials will make more than Raphael as top local government administrators.
