Gov. Roy Cooper on Wednesday released the salaries for the eight members of his cabinet that he has named so far.
When Cooper appointed his department heads in January, he did not announce their salaries at the time, which has been standard practice for prior administrations.
Despite a recent dust-up over whether senators have the right to confirm cabinet appointees, Cooper’s department heads are already on the job.
“I’m proud to have brought together this talented, experienced and hard-working team to help me move North Carolina forward,” Cooper said in a statement.
