dear board members, i am sending you a link to the "new york times" article about chief justice roberts asking the u.s. congress to give federal judges a pay raise. i believe justice roberts raises valid points in support of a long overdue pay raise for the federal judiciary. but...i can't help but be astonished by the fact that justice roberts' proposed pay raise for federal judges is approximately 4 TIMES GREATER than the ANNUAL salary for a member of the board of education for howard county. i urge the current board to promptly approach the howard county delegation and seek a long overdue raise in the annual salary of a member of the board of education for howard county. i, personally, consider the current annual board member salary of $12,000 to be an insult to the most important public body in howard county. as current board members any increase in salary will not affect your salary for the remainder of your term but you do have an opportunity to encourage our local delegation to correct this situation in time to have a positive impact on the salary of those who take office next november. please take prompt action, allen dyer candidate for a $1,000/mo position

By LINDA GREENHOUSE
A measure now moving through Congress is “vital” and long overdue, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said in his annual report on the state of the federal judiciary.
