Creating jobs for political hacks:
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has hired a former Republican campaign staffer and lobbyist as the agency's new director of brands and marketing. Aaron Mullins began work Sept. 5. He will be paid an annual salary of $68,000.
Agency spokeswoman Julie Henry would not release the written description for Mullins' new job, which is exempted from state personnel requirements. She said Mullins' duties will include improving the agency's website and expanding its use of social media.
You can't release a written description if one doesn't exist. Mullins probably doesn't know jack squat about IT issues, but that really doesn't matter. It's just a title, anyway.
