Allegany County DA likely to get his raise without lawsuit
Allegany County Lawmakers are on the verge of flip-flopping after they earlier refused a pay raise to its District Attorney. District Attorney Keith Slep was within his legal rights to have his salary increase from 119,000 dollars to 140,300 dollars, however about two weeks ago Allegany County Legislators voted against it. Now the Legislators are saying they will reconsider the state mandated pay raise. Slep says that he is relieaved that they have reversed their decision and can focus on getting back to work. Since 1999 the occupant of the DA position has not seen a significant pay raise.
