Cut top state earners

I read with some interest the BDN’s recent article describing state government’s plan to cut expenses. While efforts to curb expenses are appreciated by all of us who pay taxes, I am concerned about the tack the proposed cuts appear to be taking. Perhaps there are too many employees, but as I understand it, our governor also has a profusion of advisers earning six-figure incomes.

It would seem to me that this late in the game, the administration should be able to get along with fewer advisers in favor of keeping experienced employees on the job, our courts open and operating, all state police on the road, and our game wardens on the job. How about it governor?
