CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - Pinal County Recorder Virginia Ross has changed her mind after requesting an extra $12,000 a year in pay for handling the county's elections.
The county Board of Supervisors approved the request on a 3-2 vote on Jan. 30, but Ross has decided she doesn't want the compensation after all.
Ross is a Republican who was elected in November. She has a base salary of almost $64,000.
Supervisor Pete Rios is the only Democrat on the five-member board.
The Casa Grande Dispatch (http://bit.ly/Xlx4hb) says Rios questioned the legality of giving an elected official additional pay on top his or her base salary.
