Groups representing elected officials in Ohio hope lawmakers OK pay raises for those officials

ASSOCIATED PRESS

COLUMBUS — Groups representing elected officials in Ohio who haven’t had pay raises in years are hopeful that state lawmakers will increase those officials’ salaries.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Ohio’s trial-court and appellate-court judges haven’t had pay raises since at least 2008. State legislators, county elected officials and township trustees also haven’t seen raises since then.

All those officials’ pay is set in Ohio law and can be increased only by a legislative vote. Lawmakers have not taken such a vote in about 14 years when they approved cost-of-living adjustments for most through 2008.

A spokeswoman for House Speaker William Batchelder says he has not determined what to do about the pay-raise issue.
