Bully Pulpit

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.

Tax administrator for Stokes suspended by commissioners

DANBURY (Winston-Salem Journal) — Stokes County’s tax administrator has been suspended with pay, officials said yesterday.

Wren Carmichael was relieved of his duties by the Stokes County Board of Commissioners during an emergency meeting yesterday morning.

“It does not involve any misappropriation of funds,” said Commissioner Leon Inman, the board’s chairman. “It is a personnel matter.”

Carmichael is suspended with pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation.

Commissioners appointed Jake Oakley as interim tax administrator.

What was Mr. Carmichael doing? It has been more than a month and nothing has been published. The only information I can find related to the minutes from April 5th states that he was removed based on General Statue 105-294. What is good cause?
