NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk’s chief school administrator heads the list of Norwalk’s top 2012 salary earners, even though he has been interim superintendent for less than the entire year.
Tony Daddona made $198,490.95, according to a list released Monday evening by City Comptroller Frederic Gilden. Daddona, who took over from former Superintendent Susan Marks in August, made $181,925.21 in 2011, according to a list provided last February by Finance Director Thomas Hamilton. Marks made $200,000.06 in 2011. She was paid $160,769.23 in 2012, which included a severance package.
Norwalk Police Officer Russell Ouellette, who topped the list last year with $207,335.55 in wages, came in second this year with $190,732.55. There are six police officers among 2012′s top 10 earners, but it is important to note that their wages include many overtime hours earned on extra-duty assignments that are reimbursed to the city by private companies.
Mayor Richard Moccia made $113,963 in 2012, and $107,745.56 in 2011.
The list of Norwalk’s top 100 earners is attached below.
