High paid professors/administrators/whatthefugthey call themselves on UNC College campuses.
Highway patrol could probably get an extra year or two out of the cars they drive.
Protect the employees that are already hired, but future hires do not get full lifetime benefits.
There is money out there, and tons of it. Make this state an economic powerhouse.
Department of Ed is a disaster, it needs a cleaning from top down. Google the Education Building in Raleigh, its made of pink Marble....
NCDENR has a reckoning coming as well, they sneered at Repubs, now a worst case scenario from an Environmental standpoint as it will likely be gutted and rendered powerless. See: Fracking

I just hope they leave Health and Human Services and things like that alone. I knew of a guy that had a boss who went from a 35K job to a 75K job.
This job was to supervise 6 people, who worked independently. They DIDNT NEED SUPERVISION. They could have reported to a higher up. One of his 6 resigned, so two others offered to pick up the slack. Saving the state 40K in position cost, all they asked for was a 5k raise. My friend was told that didn't make sense.
Glad I am not as involved with that as I once was.
