The SEDCOR contract cost $12k a month.


And Goodrum's loaded salary will be $135,000/year in other words more than $10,000/month. Plus she will be working for the Commissioners directly, thus if she makes one move they don't agree with they can terminate her.

Wasn't the Se or contract paid via a grant and not from county tax dollars? Will the new position be paid from the same funds? A "no Comment" is a stellar way to start the relationship with the public.


Gioia was an amazing leader for the Chamber. A real champion for businesses and a good communicator for how new state laws and decisions would impact us locally. She will be missed.
