All the perks, but none of the responsibility.
Apparently, its good to be Andy Dillon. At least in terms of taking home a nice fat government sized paycheck. Snyder appointed the former top house Democrat, (remember this) Andy Dillon to the Michigan's top money collecting position in 2011, raising a few eyebrows from Republicans. In October of 2013, personal issues caused him to resign the six figure salaried position, again raising eyebrows; this time curious as to where he might end up.
Assisting and advising the incoming treasurer was expected, but apparently its still going on, and its like he never left:
"Dillon is being paid about $174,000 a year -- the same salary he received when he was treasurer.What what what?
First off Mr Johnson, it was YOUR wife who raised nearly a $billion to fund the 'Chicago Way' which was brought nationwide. Secondly, Dillon is one of your guys.
Send Julianna over to his crib with a pledge card for Mark.
He could use the company anyhow.

Get a load of the entitlement mentality on these two cake eaters.
AYFKM? No, you slippery crony capitalist big government Progressive. You work for me Nerd-boy, and I trust your smarmy, perpetual stealth-mode Ann Arborness as far as I can throw my house over your boondoggle DRIC bridge.
And, dig the chops on the retained mouthpiece.
"I pay my travel out of pocket every week, I pay my parking, I don't expense mileage. It's cost me tens of thousands of dollars, personally," said Kevyn Orr.
Hey, stupid, for starters Kevyn, you already got caught in a lie. Not a smart Bankruptcy shyster. Kevyn accepted the job (with extravagant perks), and please do tell us what other forms of employment covers the tab for any out of state residency? It didn't fly at Ford Motor when Channel 7's Steve Wilson exposed Mark Fields weekly trips home to Florida, to avoid Michigan's Income Tax. The Governerd likes to play government is a business, well, the Public Sector don't dig that sh!t - bad business image. Alan Mulally ate crow ...and, the li'l "Rock and Roll" Executive's corporate Gulfstream went buh-bye. Tho, Fields did keep the Mullet.
The alleged Republican Party Nerd? Slick Rick blunders on as if it's none of the public's business. THAT'S "customer service," baby!
