Tillis staffers receive full month’s pay after resignations

The recent resignations of chief of staff Charles Thomas — a former Buncombe County legislator — and another staff policy adviser in the office of N.C. House Speaker Thom Tillis have resulted in payments of one-month’s salary to each “in lieu of notice,” as approved by Tillis. The two staff members resigned following separate disclosures of inappropriate relationships with lobbyists.

    So Thomas approved his own one-month salary payment in lieu of notice? Curious that he didn’t approve even more for himself. What a swell guy.

    You caught me, Dionysis. I’ll make that correction. Apologies, and thanks.

    You’re welcome. Next time, however, I will have to raise my proof reading fee from $0.00 to $00.00!

    Just saw this price increase. You realize that will mean taxes go up.
