From Mark Perry:

The highest paid city government employee of Madison, Wisconsin, last year wasn’t the mayor.  It wasn’t the police chief.  It wasn’t even the head of Metro Transit.  It was bus driver John E. Nelson, says the Wisconsin State Journal.

  • Nelson earned $159,258 in 2009, including $109,892 in overtime and other pay.
