For Mr. Homan to grant this benefit to Mr. Kamenetz after he took office is even more questionable, as Section 405 of the county charter prohibits any change in the county executive's compensation during his term in office. And, according to a document generated by the county, Mr. Jablon is not "banking" his $111,000 annual pension, but "simultaneously collecting [his] pension and new county salary" of $180,000 annually. Even the "sweetheart" provision which allows for the banking of pensions while working does not appear to allow for that. Perhaps some other law does, but I am unaware of it. These legal questions need to be addressed, and to ensure independence, a private counsel should be hired by the council to do so.
