The article says that Jones received a salary of $146,378 in 2010, when he was authorized a salary of $90,000. Raymond Jones was the only employee in the organization. Total paid salaries in 2011 was $110,651.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The head of a Philadelphia gun buyback program gave himself unauthorized pay raises and failed to hold down other expenses paid from federal grant money, the U.S. Justice Department's inspector general said in a report on Thursday.
Compensation given to the Philadelphia Safety Net's executive director, Raymond Jones, was unreasonably high and not authorized by the group's board of directors, according to the audit report. It also said the group had a potential conflict of interest, because Jones's sister served as chairwoman of the board.
Jones, in a written response to the audit report, did not dispute the amounts but said that as the group's only employee he was doing four jobs at once, including grant manager and public relations director. He said the group was in the process of electing a new board of directors to avoid potential conflicts of interest.Many of the "gun safety" anti-second amendment organizations are similar across the states. One man or woman shops who have found a way to cash in on the media's desire for citizen disarmament, and lack of curiosity about the money funding the programs.
Who does he think he is? A member of Congress?
Google Raymond T. Jones, Jr. No surprise that he’s one of owebamaholders peeps.
How many gunz does this guy “own”?
