Ex-Richmond official to get severance package

RICHMOND, Va. — A Richmond official who stepped down amid criticism by city officials of the departments she managed will receive $40,000 in severance pay.

Carolyn Graham left last week as deputy chief administrative officer for human services.

Mayor’s office spokeswoman Tammy Hawley tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch ( that in addition to severance pay, Graham also will receive more than $18,000 for 240 hours of unused vacation time.

Earlier this year Mayor Dwight C. Jones closed the city’s juvenile detention center, which had been placed on probation in January.

Hawley says a review of the city’s Department of Social Services also will be conducted by an outside agency and the state Department of Social Services.
