If you’re a state employee, Will Doran wants to know what’s going on at your agency.
The News & Observer is making a renewed effort to focus on topics that are important to people in North Carolina and present news in a way that resonates with readers. The changes include new assignments for many of the newspaper’s reporters.
One area of focus is the state government workforce. That’s where Doran comes in. He will cover state employees – including pay, the State Health Plan, other benefits, whistleblowers and laws that affect state workers.
Previously, Doran reported for PolitiFact North Carolina, the partnership between The N&O and PolitiFact, and also covered towns in western Wake County for the paper.
