On Friday, the commission appointed by Gov. Cuomo to decide whether or not to grant the New York judges a pay raise voted 4 to 3 to approve an increase of 27% over 3 years. Our judges have gone 12 years without a raise and were some of the lowest paid judges in any state.
LRANY supports fair compensation for NY judges. Our judges have strong opportunities in the private sector and they need to be fairly compensated for the work that they perform on behalf of the state. The judges in our system are talented and experienced judges whose compensation must be kept fair and current to ensure their retention.
