199 LA County Workers Earned More than $250,000

Tuesday, 05 Oct 2010 02:37 PM

 

LOS ANGELES — Nearly 200 Los Angeles County employees earned more than a quarter of a million dollars in 2009.

The list of the county's top earners reported Monday in the Los Angeles Times was in response to a public records act request from the newspaper.

Many of the workers named on the list include physicians, county firefighters and a handful of top sheriff's employees.

Topping the list is Elaine Yang, a senior physician at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center who earned $430,909 in 2009.

The county counsel's office had delayed the release of the information to the Times, saying it needed time to give all 100,000 county employees the opportunity to object to the release of their names for what they called "personal safety reasons."
