How much does a California Superior Court Judge make? 

Well, now you can find out at

State Controller John Chiang feels it is important for the public to know more about the compensation their public servants receive. 

"We've had cities that have been in difficult financial straights, we've had a few of them go into bankruptcy. It's very important that people have that access to that information," Chiang said. 

And with every election, more information about candidates makes for a more informed voter. 

"People work hard, they send in their hard-earned tax contributions, and they want to make sure they get bang for the buck," Chiang said. 

And the median wage for a judge in California is about $176,000.
