It took four months, but the salary of Ronald L. Cuie is finally commensurate with his job.
A former convict, Cuie last August was demoted as director of the Mayor's Office for the Reentry of Ex-Offenders. Mayor Nutter called for the job change after it became known that Cuie had doubled his staff and overspent his budget within six months of being named director.
Cuie was reassigned to another position in the same office, but kept the same $87,500-a-year salary.
Until about a month ago.
Everett Gillison, deputy mayor for public safety and the overseer of the reentry office, confirmed today that Cuie is now being paid $60,000.
Since Cuie's departure, the office has been led by chief of staff Carolyn Harper. Asked today if there were still plans to fill the director position, Gillison said: "We'll hopefully have an announcement soon."
