From the Charlotte Observer

Story by John Frank:

RALEIGH Gov. Pat McCrory gave his cabinet secretaries pay hikes as large as $13,200, far more than anything afforded to typical state employees in recent years.

The Republican’s cabinet makes a combined $1.1 million – an 8 percent increase from his Democratic predecessor.

“I’m trying to make it at least where they can afford to live while running multibillion-dollar departments,” McCrory said in an interview.
