Some Iowa officeholders refuse pay cuts

Three Iowa officeholders haven't joined other statewide officials in taking pay cuts in the face of the state's falling revenues.

Lt. Gov. Patty Judge, Secretary of State Michael Mauro and Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald have refused to follow Gov. Chet Culver, who took a 10 percent cut in his pay.

Mauro pointed out he hasn't received a pay raise in four years.
I can't imagine the sacrifices that he must make just to make ends meet.

Libertarian candidate for Iowa Secretary of State, Jake Porter, has said that, if elected, he would cut his salary in half.
