|"It costs what it costs...I'm not going to apologize."|
From the Covington News:
According to the finance department, the rates of Craig and Jenny Carter went from $195 per hour in FY2013 to $220.95 per hour in FY2015, while the rates of Banks Craig, Andrea Gray and Lara Benz went from $150 per hour in FY2013 to $169.95 per hour in FY2015.Also this:
According to the most recent financial report, the General Fund has reached 120.7% of its legal budget, just more than halfway through the fiscal year.
And for good measure:
“It costs what it costs,” [Craig said, in regards to budget overruns for legal expenditures]. “Sorry if we’ve exceeded the budget, but I’m not going to apologize.”
Craig’s firm billed the county more than $1.1 million for the 2014 calendar year while owing millions in federal income tax and penalties.
So the big take-aways from this:
- Wm. Thomas Craig, Esq. is an Asshole.
- Newton County deserves everything that's coming down the track.
- John Douglas and Levie Maddox should start acting like Republicans. If not, they should both resign tomorrow.
