Lubbock County Justice of the Peace Jean Anne Stratton is getting the raise she asked for.

County Commissioners approved the salary grievance committee's recommendation to pay her 4,300 dollars more than her current salary of 57,600 dollars.
     
She told the committee last week that her court's seen more cases as the county has grown. Judge Stratton also noted that colleagues in counties with similar cases and caseloads make more than she does.
     
Judge Stratton is the only elected office-holder to request a raise as commissioners continue work on a final budget proposal.
