Reader Chiara reports that Darnell Earley got a raise after his brief stint in Flint, where he saved money by shutting off the safe water supply, which caused lead poisoning to many children.

She writes:

“[Governor Rick] Snyder gave him a a raise- he’s making $40,000 additional in the new job:

“Earley, who starts immediately, said he’ll earn a salary of $221,000 annually. He earned $110,000 in Saginaw and $180,000 per year as Flint’s emergency manager, according to his contract with the state.”

“It looks like he’s the 4th emergency manager the schools have had in the last 6 six years. Complete and utter chaos. No one has a chance to “improve” anything- they’re replaced constantly.”
