SAN MATEO (KCBS)— When Don Horsley campaigned for the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors in 2010, he vowed not to take an additional six-figure salary from the county. He was already receiving a $215,000 a year pension from being retired as the longtime county sheriff. He’s now gone back on that promise.
This week, Horsley’s office released a statement that said he and his wife have begun paying for long-term medical care for her mother. Horsley now takes home a $120,000 paycheck in taxpayer-backed money from the county for his work as District 3 Supervisor.
