WASHINGTON, D.C. - The deputy communications director for Gov. Pat McCrory will be joining a public relations firm in Washington, D.C., according to a news release.
FP1 Strategies LLC announced Wednesday Diaz will be joining the firm in February as vice president.
Diaz had faced controversy in August when he and another young Republican staff member who helped McCrory get elected was rewarded with big salaries in his new administration, according to records.
The then 24-year-old Diaz had received a $23,000 raise in April 2013 which boosted his salary to $85,000.
