Eloy Pulido's Fight for Standardized County Pay Scale
When County Judge Eloy Pulido took office on Jan.1, 1999, there was $75,000 in the General Fund. It was close to an emergency situation that required immediate action. Hiring and wages were frozen. Travel was cut by 50%, purchasing was restricted and many other measures were implemented to drastically cut spending. Within three months, the budget was stabilized.
