Senate has seven spouses on session payroll

Posted By on Tue, Jan 29, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Following up on yesterday's report on legislative family on the legislative session payroll of the House.

Here's the list of Senate employees for the legislative session and their pay. It includes seven spouses (since the Senate has 35 members, that puts the percentage higher than the House, which has nine spouses of the 100 members on the payroll).

* Deborah Wyatt, Sonja Burnett, Deborah Williams, Jo Lindsey and Joan Pierce all are paid $575 a week as tour guides. Ginger Cheatham gets $575 a week as a VIP hostess. Mandy Dismang is paid $82.14 for each day she works as assistant to the Senate president pro tempore. Democratic spouses outnumber Republicans on the Senate side 5-2 (Williams and Dismang.)

For the record, here's the full-time Senate staff and pay.
