County CEO Gets Pay Raise

The Board of Supervisors this week approved a 3 percent pay raise — $9,000 — for County CEO Mona Miyasato, bumping her salary up to $239,000. Miyasato came aboard in December 2013 with a salary slightly less than that of her predecessor, Chandra Wallar. She moved from Marin County, where she served as chief assistant county administrator, and has a contract through 2017.
