Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Clarification on Salaries

I want to thank the Connection for the fair and generally accurate reporting on my comments at the April 9 Board of Supervisors budget hearing.

However, there is an important correction.

According to the article, I said, "school and other county employees earn more than the average private sector worker in the region."

What I actually said was, "half of private-sector jobs in Fairfax County have salaries of $77K or less." The average salary for teachers and public safety employees is $77K or higher. The average salary for county non-public-safety employees is $66K.
