Funny how the top six counties in median income are all liberal bastions. Those wonderful republican counties in the Central Valley and Inland Empire rank near the bottom. Facts seem to have a well-known liberal bias.

Yes, there are lots of hypocritical liberal elites in this area, thanks for pointing that out, CFV. I'm sure Obama already knows this and will be more than happy to implement his fix to 'income inequality' in a neighborhood near you. Prepare to lose some of your income and have it given to underachievers. Enjoy living on a lower standard.

No surprise here. Republicans want the population to be dumb, miserable, all salted and fatted up with potato chips, and glued to the television set. (See above.) When people become educated, and experience relatively higher levels of success because of it, they see Republican pap for exactly what it is.

The real question - What is the median income of an Alameda County employee and don't forget to include the retirement. Focus on senior management and I imagine they blow away the average citizen earning rate?

So right, Spudly. Pleasanton is so isolated, few actually see that pathetic operation in our county offices, so BART. All those fat retirements for people who couldn't get jobs out here in the real world. But they demonstrate a 'living large attitude'!! Oblivious to those who actually have to function according to job descriptions.
Along with more union fat retirements for all the well-paid Cal network of employees at every level. Layer on layer duplications in the whole Alameda County network. We have 3 court systems to support, Oakland, Hayward, and Pleasanton. Most of the rest of us, have no retirements, some have personal IRAs.
