How Dale Folwell responds to reports of State Health Plan overpayments

I trust you've seen DG Martin's piece on Dale Folwell.

My local paper ran it front and center in the Letters to the Editor.

Reminded me of my letter to the Journal in 2016 about Folwell.

The tale of North Carolina's $45 million 'seat-warmer'

The tale of North Carolina's $45 million 'seat-warmer'
By Ned Barnett - nbarnett@newsobserver.com

For a man who spent 14 years in public service as mayor of Charlotte, Pat McCrory brought an oddly skeptical attitude toward public employees when he became governor.

In his first State of the State speech in 2013, he said, “We want to reward our talented state employees, but seat-warmers must be a thing of the past.”

Will Josh Stein continue his fight to keep state employee from having OAH hearing?

On May 18, 2017 Administrative Law Judge Julian Mann, III sent notice to me and NC Assistant AG Joseph Finarelli a 'Notice of Contested Case and Assignment'.

This was in response to my request to have a hearing to contest that I was improperly reclassified by Governor McCrory as 'managerial exempt' even though I managed no people, no programs, never met anyone from the McCrory administration, and, after I was fired, the McCrory administration did not ask me to turn over a single file or document.

Why would Josh Stein Fight to Deny a State Employee His or Her Constitutional Right to a Hearing?

In 2012 I was a low level state employee who had earned a vested right to a hearing in the Office of Administrative Hearings (“OAH”) to contest whether or not my position had been appropriately reclassified as exempt from the State Personnel Act by any Governor who might be elected in the future.

In 2013 the General Assembly tried to take that vested right to a hearing away from me and 1,199 other state employees.

Dear Joe,

I reached back out to DOL last week and am waiting to hear back. Feel free to continue to bug me. Things are crazy busy right now, so a reminder now and again is good. Thanks.

Best,

Ruling blocks Clemmons man from learning reasons for firing in whistle-blower case

By Richard Craver Winston-Salem Journal 1 hr ago (0)

An administrative law judge has ruled that a Clemmons man does not have the right to have a hearing to learn the reasons behind his firing from a state job in 2013.
Judge Randolph Ward’s ruling last week covers the N.C. Office of Administrative Hearings, or OAH, which is where the legal case of Joseph Vincoli against the N.C. Department of Public Safety would have been handled.

Pins for Poll Workers

In 2008 I worked the polls in Forsyth County.

It was a temporary work job through a temporary work agency.

In 2016 I worked the polls in Forsyth County.

It was a temporary work job through the same temporary work agency.

This time, though, the Forsyth County BOE sent me a lapel pin to commemorate my work at the polls.

In 2008 my downtown post was instructed not to instruct voters about how to use the voting machines.

In 2016 my suburban post allowed us to help the voter in any way we could.

I received a pin in 2016.

The village idiot takes the throne
His the wind in which all must sway
All sane people, die now
Be lifted up and carried away
You've got no home in this world of sorrows

There's a parasite feeding on
Everybody's bag of rage
What goes out returns again
To smite the mouth and burn the page
Under the rain of all our dark tomorrows
