The salary ranges from $56,448 to $84,671. With the policy adjustment made yesterday, the commissioners must approve a salary more than the mid-range.I didn't realize the city of King didn't have health care. Let's see, you have J.R. Jones Medical Center, Stokes Medical Center Park, approx. 20 minutes to 2 hospitals and numerous doctors in Winston-Salem, etc, and somehow we have to open a taxpayer-funded health clinic in King because the southwest section of the county don't have health care... Are they serious??? Did Stanley Smith give that comment with a straight face???
“If this is what it takes to get the Southwestern Services Center open, to get this position filled and have health care,” Commissioner Stanley Smith said. Health care has been a priority for Smith since he was elected, he said.
The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.
