RALEIGH, North Carolina — The outgoing head of a conservative-leaning legal organization, Greensboro's ex-mayor and a former Charlotte city council member are on a new state panel that will hear unresolved unemployment benefit appeals.
Gov. Pat McCrory announced late Friday his appointments to the Board of Review. It will become the agency's final ruler on appeals.
The chairwoman will be attorney Jeanette Doran, who worked for years at the North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law. Other members are former Greensboro Mayor Keith Holliday and ex-Charlotte council member Stanley Campbell. The board was initially created in 2011, but delays pushed back the appointment date.
McCrory's top legislative adviser told lawmakers the governor thinks the review board is unnecessary and a waste of money. State law has each board member making more than $120,000.
