With an annual salary of about $223,000, Roberto “Bobby” Santos, superintendent of United Independent School District, Laredo’s largest employer, makes the most money of anyone employed by the five local taxing entities: UISD, LISD, the City of Laredo, Webb County and Laredo Community College.
It's nice to know that some people earn a six-figure salary but it doesn't inspire me one way or the other. Carlos Villarreal may be the top money maker at the city but that's of little significance when all I want is for him to back up from the microphone when he speaks at city meetings.
