New Montgomery County Attorney Marc Hansen will take a nearly 9 percent pay cut from his predecessor.
He'll bank a meager $190,000, said County Executive Ike Leggett in a memo to the County Council. Former County Attorney Leon Rodriguez made more than $206,000 a year.
Hansen will join dozens of local officials with salaries that rival those in some of the nation's most powerful positions.
The County Council must confirm the appointment.
