FACT: Tillis Gave Staff 27% Pay Increase After Promising To Trim Payroll

The News and Observer has the details.

In all, Tillis gave raises to seven members of the 14-person staff he had before April. He hired an additional employee in May, paying him $70,000 annually.

Tillis and Senate Leader Phil Berger, both Republicans, are in their first terms leading their chambers. In January, as they prepared for a session where they would pass a budget cutting state spending and employees, they both pledged to have smaller payrolls than their Democratic predecessors to set an example of fiscal restraint.

Tally this as another flip-flop for Tillis.
