A former staffer of Councilwoman Jolanda Jones has filed a complaint with the city’s Office of Inspector General, accusing her of employee misconduct in cutting his salary by more than 18 percent after he cooperated with investigators looking into whether Jones used city resources to support her private law practice.
Jones cut the salary of Todd Curry, her public policy director, from $50,000 to $40,820 at the beginning of July, according to records the Chronicle obtained through the Texas Public Information Act.
[Spokeswoman Kelly] Cripe said salary reduction discussions began well before the release of the OIG report in June as council members prepared for cuts to their office budgets. That timing undermines any allegation that Curry’s salary cut was related to the investigation, she said.
Curry filed the complaint in August.
I don’t even know what to say. I’m just going to wait and see what the OIG says this time.
