KENOSHA–A report released today by Taxpayers United of America (TUA) reveals that government employees of the City of Kenosha, County of Kenosha, and Kenosha School District are receiving huge salaries and that their estimated pension benefits in many cases are larger than salaries in the private sector.
“At the top of the Top 100 Kenosha School District salaries is Michele Hancock, with an annual salary of $195,000. The state refuses to release figures relating to pensions, and I condemn this lack of transparency. On the basis of the figures that were released, Hancock’s future annual pension including Social Security is estimated to start at a very sumptuous $162,500. Fringe benefits, which can include pension contribution, health care, and life insurance, are estimated to be $69,188.” Read more

I received this information minus the names.” Read more
