Sandusky Schools superintendent Bill Pahl topped the list of highest-paid public employees in Erie, Huron and Ottawa counties.

In 2007, his total gross wage was $122,186.81.

Pahl, a graduate of Sandusky High School, was selected chief of the school district in 2003 after serving as interim superintendent. When the school board began searching for a superintendent, board members said the interim superintendent would not be considered for the position. They later changed their minds and hired him for the job. Nearly five years later, Pahl is still at the helm.

Kevin Baxter has been Erie County prosecutor since 1989. That year, there were 222 cases indicted. By 2004, the number of people indicted increased to 549, setting a new record. Many of the cases were generated by the Erie County Drug Task Force, an organization that was operated by the Prosecuting Attorney’s office. Baxter graduated from Sandusky High School in 1975. His 2007 salary was $112,202.35.
