County's Top 20

Progress Report

Compared to a survey conducted by Metro five years ago, San Jose has made substantive gains in terms of diversifying its upper management--with the notable exception of the Redevelopment Agency. San Jose's highest-paid bureaucrats tend to reflect the composition of the city. Three of San Jose's ten top-paid public officials are women, four are people of color.
