McHenry County Clerk Mary McClellan is proposing to change job titles and salaries before the County Board’s Human Resources Committee Thursday morning.
The Election Administrative Supervisor, Ed Gil, hired shortly after the new County Clerk took office (see here), would have his title changed to Chief Deputy, if I read the memo (Packet page 19) correctly.
I don’t know anything about the county pay scale, but Gil would go from “hourly, grade 9N” to “exempt, grade 9E.”
The justification says,
“The reclassification of title and grade of the two hourly positions to exempt positions reduces personnel cost in the County’s budget…The overall affect on the County Clerk’s budge is a reduction to the departments personnel cost due to the reclassification of two hourly positions to exempt positions. This request will not cause the fiscal year 2015 budget to be adjusted.”
The accompanying resolution states that the action is being taken “to reduce the costs of overtime earned in the election process.”

Another who read the rather confusing memo thinks I misinterpreted it.
The other take is
“Your facts are not quite right on the County Clerk article.
“I believe Mary’s husband has the other position that is being requested (the 10E to 11E) and Linda Fitzgerald has the position you made reference to” [that is, Chief Deputy].
