These N.J. state workers make more than Gov. Chris Christie

Advance Media for NJ.COM | May 10, 2017

When compared to how much governors in other states are paid, Gov. Chris Christie is sitting pretty. Only five governors make more in annual salary than Christie, whose $175,000 a year is tied with Virginia.   But when compared to how much people are paid in the state government he runs, Christie is a mere also-ran.  His salary is bested by physicians, psychiatrists and the heads of state authorities. There are more than 150 state employees who bring home more than the state's top elected official.  The list includes workers on the state payroll, which includes those who work for state departments and authorities, as well as those in the Legislature and judiciary.  And Christie might skid farther down the list because some employees may take home much more than their salary listed in state payroll data because of overtime or sick leave payouts.
