(KTVI) - The You Paid For It Team questions the head of the new office set up by Missouri Governor Jay Nixon in the wake of the Ferguson crisis.
Two officials were hired to run the office that's supposed to look for ways to help the poor and minorities.
But both officials are raking in six figure salaries. The Director of the new Office of Community Engagement, Maida Coleman, is being paid $120,000 a year. Her Deputy Director. Marvin Teer makes $110,000 a year.
Investigator Elliott Davis asked what will they find out that's not already known.
It's going to cost an estimated $400,000 to run the new office thru the middle of next year at which time the Democratic administration will have to ask the Republican legislature for addition funding. No one is sure what the ultimate price tag will be.
We asked was this a political move by the Governor in the face of criticism of his handling of the Ferguson Crisis.
