Los Angeles Times

Three hospital district executives have emerged as among the highest-paid public employees in California, according to a state report, including an official in San Diego County who made more than $1 million in 2009.

Palomar Pomerado Hospital District Chief Executive Michael Covert’s pay is the highest out of thousands of special-district employees covered so far in a database compiled by State Controller John Chiang. The database now includes compensation figures for all employees of California cities and counties and many of its special districts.
