Joshua Perper, the coroner of Allegheny County, Pa., said that he turned down the Los Angeles job because he and his wife could not afford the kind of home to which they had become accustomed. Perper's salary would have been $150,000 a year, and the county was willing to loan him 30% of the purchase price of a new home.
