Jean Carroll: Still 11 weeks off

February 3, 2014 

In regard to your Jan. 28 article “No more comp time for Beam”: Who is the City of Raleigh or The News & Observer trying to kid? The article states that instead of comp time, Beam will now get full days off in exchange for weekend travel to housing conferences and other professional events. Beam anticipates earning 12 to 14 days in addition to his six weeks of vacation and 12 days of sick time. Assuming he only earns 12 days for travel, that along with the vacation time and sick time is one day shorter than the 11 weeks he took last year. Great move, Raleigh!
