Posted On July 29, 2021
CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Elections has decided to cut the salaries of its four elected officials in a move that the board described as a “desperate measure.”
The board’s leaders said they were “totally unable” to meet their January budget.
The move, the board’s board president, Mark J. Williams, said, was a “necessary response” to the unprecedented election fraud that occurred in November 2016.
The board was asked by the governor’s office to cut staffs and other employees and to hire more qualified candidates.
The state’s chief election official, who had served as chief elections official in the past, has been paid $2.8 million since 2018.
The Charlotte-mecklenberg board also said it will make $5.5 million in new contributions to its General Fund.
