Arizona Congressional Delegation's Payroll Figures; Flake Ramps Up

New staff salary figures for the first quarter of 2011 have been released for the House of Representatives.  Arizona's Politics will look into the data in more detail later, but here are the raw numbers.  Highlights:  Rep. Jeff Flake (R-CD6) is the only one of the five Arizona House members (who are not freshman) to increase his payroll (up 11.5%) from the same period in 2010, and veteran Rep. Ed Pastor (D-CD4) has a lower payroll than two of the three freshman.  Rep. Trent Franks (R-CD2) has the highest payroll and Rep. David Schweikert (R-CD5) has the lowest.

In order, from highest to lowest:
Franks (R-CD2): $275,329 (down about $46,000)
Giffords (D-CD8): $270879 (down about $10,000)
Grijalva (D-CD7): $261,811 (down about $10,000)
Flake (R-CD6): $243,770 (up about $25,000)

Quayle (R-CD3): $183,481
Pastor (D-CD4): $179,139 (down about $19,000)
