Luger named UNC counsel

The UNC system has a new top lawyer: Laura Bernstein Luger, who has been an attorney with Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice of Durham.

Luger was announced today as vice president for legal affairs and general counsel of the University of North Carolina system. She starts the job Feb. 1 at an annual salary of $225,000, Jane Stancill reports.

Luger succeeds Leslie Winner, who resigned from the post last month to become executive director of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.

UNC President Erskine Bowles made the announcement at a meeting of the UNC Board of Governors in Winston-Salem. He described Luger as a seasoned negotiator, mediator, and litigator.

Re: Luger named UNC counsel

$225,000 seems a bit much, and yes, is more than the Governor makes as well as Members of Congress, but more reasonable than the salary of the CEO of ElectriCities who is making almost $500,000 in a role of responsibility related to cities in this state. I have found no city manager making more than $200,000 yet there are at least three others at ElectriCities making more than $200,000. Seems we have a problem in this state with public salaries on the backs of the middle class.

$225,000? This is more than "our" Governor takes home.
