This report by The News Leader reveals that the Valley Community Services Board offered top dollar to a job candidate with no mental health experience. The board was facing a $1.8 million budget gap, though still wanted to pay $162,000 to hire an executive director. The proposed salary is just slightly less than "the head of the state's biggest community services board," as revealed through a Freedom of Information Act request. The VCSB chairwoman, who is married to Waynesboro Mayor Frank Lucente, recommended the new executive director. The community of Waynesboro also "contributes to Valley CSB's budget."
