Perdue orders salary investigation

November 23, 2009 6:23:43 AM PST
Governor Beverly Perdue has ordered an investigation into the salaries of local managers of NC's Alcohol Beverage Control Commission boards. The ABC boards handled alcohol sales for the state and a recent investigation uncovered wide ranges of pay.

Perdue's office was alerted to the problem when a Wilmington newspaper discovered that the administrator of the New Hanover County ABC makes over $200,000 a year.

In comparison, the head of the Durham County ABC, which is similar in size and sales to New Hanover, makes a little over $100,000 a year.
