There's a New Breed of government employee taking charge:
An adviser to state Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos has been paid more than $228,000 by the state for eight months of work. Hauck came to DHHS from New Breed Logistics, where Wos’ husband is CEO. Hauck is vice president of marketing and communications, and is on leave from the company. Wos was a campaign fundraiser for Gov. Pat McCrory, and New Breed employees were prime contributors. Hauck gave $6,500 to McCrory’s campaign in 2011 and 2012.
Diaz said in an email that Hauck “is an accomplished leader with 35 years of executive management experience across the entire spectrum of business operations and communications disciplines. He provides solid business insight with the ability to ascertain and analyze organizational requirements, forecast goals, streamline operations, and execute new program concepts.”
Diaz wrote that Hauck came up with a plan to save $5 million “without reductions in services rendered,” but did not specify the plan or the services.
Kim Genardo, McCrory’s spokeswoman, said Hauck “provides a helluva lot of good service.”
What a circus. It has me anticipating the Uncle Sam on stilts walking by.
