Today John Bury, who pens the blog BuryPensions, lists the 69 public employees in New Jersey who make over $250,000 a year, not including benefits. Seven of them are administrators in K-12 public schools. Bury also notes that there are 389,968 active participants in the state Retirement System, whose annual pensions come to $26.6 million.
