  • Governor-elect Polis will enjoy a salary his predecessor didn't.

State elected officials will see their paychecks increase in January for the first time since 1999, under a 2015 Senate bill.

The governor's pay, for example, will rise from $90,000 to $123,193, or 66 percent of the Colorado Supreme Court chief justice's pay. Other statewide officials' pay likewise will increase under a formula, and legislators will see pay rise from $30,000 a year to $40,242.

County officials' pay in the state's largest counties also will rise to $120,485 for commissioners and county officials, such as treasurer and assessor, elected Nov. 6, and to $153,332 for newly elected sheriffs. Those salaries had been $113,490 and $144,430, respectively. Previously elected commissioners do not get a pay increase.
