Palmer Leads Weston's Top Salary List

WESTON, Conn. – Earning more than $230,000, Weston school Superintendent Colleen Palmer has become the top salary earner out of all municipal and Board of Education employees in town.

Board of Education Director of Finance and Operations Jo-Ann Keating sits just below Palmer in the No. 2 spot, making $172,705.

Of the Top 20 earners in town, many of the numbers are not set in stone. According to Keating, “The Board of Education determines salary increases for nonaffiliated staff members at the end of each fiscal year, and any salary adjustments are determined after a review of performance. An amount of $35,000 has been budgeted to fund estimated increments.” In other words, many of these salary earners could possibly earn more than listed below, at the end of the school year.

The staff members on the Board of Education dominated the list, leaving only two spots to town employees: Town Administrator Tom Landry, who takes home $127,232 to rank 14th, while Finance Director Rick Darling earns $115,403 to rank 19th.
