RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The chairman of North Carolina’s Democratic Party and four current or former party leaders are resolving their dispute.
The state party released a signed settlement agreement Monday settling an internal complaint last month filed against Chairman Randy Voller. The complaint accused Voller of exceeding his authority by dismissing the executive director and appointing several donors to a party governing board.
The parties went through mediation and all five signed a document agreeing that party rules are unclear on the issues and laying out guidance for moving ahead. The agreement also says Voller will direct the new executive director to end contracts with two firms that are at the center of another disagreement.
Voller has faced other criticism since getting elected in February. The party’s first vice-chair resigned last week.
