      Only hours after his inauguration Thursday, Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano was preparing to sign an
      executive order slashing appointees' salaries 14 percent. The pay cut, effective immediately, applies to
      appointees of former Executive Edward H. McNamara who will remain in their jobs on an interim basis while their
      futures are assessed. Gordon Camp, deputy director of administration in the Department of Public Services, was
      among scores of McNamara appointees who showed up for work Thursday because they hadn't been instructed
      otherwise. Camp had not been informed of the pay cut. "If everybody is biting the bullet, I have no problem with
      that," said Camp, who had a salary of $84,684 as of April 1. "You just can not continue to go along the same
      route if there's a crunch." Ficano has dismissed dozens of McNamara's highest-ranking officials but few of his
      mid-level appointees. The Detroit News reported in August that McNamara had 332 appointees, of whom 112 had
      salaries of more than $100,000 as of April
