Description

A Des Moines Register investigation revealed that Polk County board members often "go home early on weekdays to run personal errands -- which for one includes playing golf and slot machines -- despite claims that they typically work all day." With a $68,313 yearly salary, Polk County board members are among the highest-paid supervisors in US counties of similar size.
