St. Tammany Parish Coroner Galvan, highest paid elected official in state.



$230,000 a year...

Fox 8 Lee Zurick Investigation

I understand he is a physician, but this is crazy.

Well $280K is too much to pay a dude that just sits there between two walls.

His time is coming. The days of whooping it up at La Provence on the taxpayer's dime are coming to an end. He and Patricia Schwartz Core will have to get together and compare notes.

Dude, there are plenty of corners in the NFL that make wayyyyyy more than that. Glad to hear this guy is playing some ball while accomplishing his duties as an elected officer.

I could understand paying the EBR or Orleans Parish Coroner this much, but St. Tammany?

Great pay for being the Maytag repairman of state coroners.

This is a case of no accountability. He essentially set his own salary.

Think he also put his wife on the payroll.

His wife is on the payroll at his other job. She makes 6 figures at his private medical practice in Slidell.

It seems he gets paid 1) for being coroner, 2) for being a private doctor, and 3) for services he claims to provide to the City of Slidell. Who knows what else.

Galvan is as crooked as a paper clip. My parents have both fired him as their doctor.

He will be in jail within 18 months. Charges should be filed against him soon.

Small potatoes compared to the rest of the crooks that run St. Tammany. Eddie was the sacrificial lamb, poor bastard like his GreyGoose to much and was an easy target.

Glad they got this POS cornered. He was given his budget and authority to pay himself via a bill by A.G. Crow. St. Tammany voters never saw a millage increase they didn't like. It's a sorry situation here politically. The same clowns like Reed, Strain, Price, Galvan, Core are all connected but they seem untouchable. Lee Zurich is the only one with the sack to go after these clowns.

This!!!

And not one person/ politician has yet to say... hey, maybe we should roll back the property tax for this.

And the new 3 story parking lot they built for the court house is not because of more criminals or cases but for all the fricking govt employees they keep hiring...

Gobs of money... Property tax intake pretty much doubled post-Katrina due to rising property value.

And add no accountability... as long as you stay out of the news (ie don't be a drunk on the road) no one really gives a shite...
