Gerald Champagne, Attorney for Escambia County Sheriff's Office
Hired in 2010 at a rate of $35 per hour.
Then in 2012, Mr. Champagne's Salary jumped more than the 3% merit raise he received every year.
His prior employment contract was replaced by this.
Since then he's jumped even more to this.
As of last year, his pay is now: $170,498 per year which based on his contract is roughly $80 per hours at 40 hours a week for 52 weeks. What was even more telling was the number of people who make over $100K a year at the Sheriff's office.
