Elected officials aren’t the highest-paid employees

moneyfallingGovernors and other elected officials make a good living, but they aren’t the highest-paid public employees. In 41 states, including Kansas, the highest-paid public employees are college football or basketball coaches, the website Deadspin.com reported. In the remaining states, college presidents and college medical school or law school deans or professors are paid the most. Though college coaches make much more than elected officials, most of their salaries are paid with outside revenues, not directly with state funds.
