Regarding the Aug. 16 news article “Young McCrory staffers highly compensated”: Outrage is my only response to learning about the high salaries of McCrory’ s former campaign workers. Are these our hard-earned tax dollars at work? Is this justifiable when our Republican administration and legislature tell us that there is not enough money to provide any raises at all to our teachers, our health care workers, our first responders?
Now that they are handicapping our education system and denying Medicaid to 500,000 North Carolinians, who do they think will be educated enough or healthy enough to provide these services to us in the future? Will these high-paid young Republicans help our children get to college? Will they give us flu shots before the next outbreak? Will they respond to the next 911 call when we have our next heart attack or motor vehicle accident? I don’t think so!
