A Twist on Double Dipping

Does your friendly City or County employee also serve as an elected official? Does that smiling face behind the wheel of City or County snow plow serve on City Council? How about that hard working county administrator...does he serve on a City Council or as a part-time Mayor!?

Granted by numbers there are only dozens, or perhaps a hundred or so special folks who are City or County Employees that also serve as elected officials in Lake County. Why these people luck?

Well besides participation the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS) and the tax-payer funded contributions these people enjoy...time is also vested on top of that as an elected official simultaneously!

That's right!!!! You can earn even more time towards a generous OPERS pension if you are a city or County employee AND you can finagle a seat on City Council or as a part-time Mayor.

My favorite double dipper of this sort is Lake County Assistant Administrator Bill Margalis who has served as Council President of Wickliffe, and is now going to be Mayor!

Who is your favorite double dipper of this sort?
