McCrory Administration’s email signature policy longer than proposed bill to privatize Medicaid

Strange but true – Governor Pat McCrory’s proposed legislation for privatizing our award-winning NC Medicaid program (presented to the General Assembly by NC DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos last week) is two pages long.  The Administration’s new policy for DHHS workers on how their email signatures should look (McCrory and Secretary Wos demand 11-point arial font among many, many other things as Rob Schofield reported last week) is three pages long.

Critical health care for 1.8 million North Carolinians v. how state employees should sign their email:  Mixed message, mixed priorities, and mixed signals.

    Some things are easier to accomplish than others. Email thing is probably longer because you have so many examples, just so you can cover every doofus out there who wants to have a custom signature. I would think Medicaid needs more guidelines, otherwise said doofuses (doofi?) will find some way to skirt the rules in a leftist direction. So I actually agree with something on this site…..bound to happen once.

    What do they have against serif fonts? They’re far more readable.

    This email signature policy is the dumbest thing I have seen in quite awhile!!

    As a state employee with antiquated Windows programs (I still use Word 2003) it has taken up a good hour of my time today, and assistance from two coworkers, to try and get 11 pt font in black color for the signature on the emails I reply to – and we did NOT succeed! So now it is on to IT guy to get it fixed! What a brilliant use of public resources, right?

    Really now Govenor McCrory, do we not have more important and pressing issues to deal with?

    I kinda doubt he personally dealt with it, there are plenty of positions out there doing nothing under the democrat regimes. They probably picked one of those guys up….said hey you are a leftist…..find some way to tell someone what to do. Right up the leftist alley.
