Ferguson commission reaction

Ferguson commission reaction Live

The Ferguson Commission has held several meetings, and this week announced the hiring of a managing director.

Johnson-Javois will be pad the same amount she makes as CEO of the St. Louis Integrated Health Network -- $138,915. One of her tasks will be developing a report outlining the commission's findings and recommendations. That report is due in September 2015.

The hiring raised questions among some regular Ferguson protesters.

Non-protesters also questioned the move.

Nixon appointed Johnson-Javois to be a member of the commission; since she was hired as the director, she will become an ex-officio member.


The co-chair of the commission, the Rev. Starsky Wilson, received several questions about the decision. He offered to talk with people on the phone.
