The last council did, however, increase the base salary of the county executive from $90,000 to $130,000. Craig, who wasn't eligible for another term as county executive and ran unsuccessfully for governor in 2014, vetoed the play increase for his successor, but the council overrode the veto 6-1, with Slutzky casting the lone negative vote. The increase took effect on July 1, 2015.
As a result, Glassman took office on Dec. 1, 2014 with a salary $105,136 and received almost a 25 percent raise to $130,983 on July 1, 2015. With his allowed 0.73 raise this July 1, the county executive now makes $131,939.
