Feuding escalates between Collin County candidates

The feuding keeps escalating in the Joe Jaynes vs. Corbett Howard race for Collin County commissioner.
Mr. Jaynes, the incumbent, accuses Mr. Howard of conducting a smear campaign and making misleading calls to voters.
Mr. Howard, Celina's mayor, charges that Mr. Jaynes isn't a full-time commissioner because he teaches part time at a community college and practices law.
"He makes it sound like I have an office and a shingle," said Mr. Jaynes, who received a law degree in 2004 while in office. "I've done probably a week's worth of lawyering over the past 2½ years."
If so, what about Public Servants that "earn" income from investments, business ventures and such?
Seems unfair that a Public Servant earning an income from a business they own, or other ventures, should receive the same salary as a Public Servant that gave up all just to serve.
Maybe a sliding scale for salaries? That might put some perspective in things and tell us who is really willing to work for the citizens.
BTW; The candidates are welcome at the Collin County Station forums if they wish.
