State's attorney in line to receive a raise of $17,000

October 01, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The Howard County state's attorney will receive a $17,000 raise under legislation to be introduced Monday before the County Council.

Last year, the General Assembly approved legislation giving district and circuit court judges a raise. Howard County law requires that the state's attorney, who now earns $84,000, make the same amount as district court judges. The raise becomes effective in January.

State's Attorney Marna McLendon, a Republican, is running for re-election against Democrat Tim McCrone.

The council also will consider legislation that would fund an estimated $67,000-a-year deputy state's attorney position to handle the office's operations.
