Guilford County DSS staff told to hide backlog, according to report

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The staff of the Guilford County Department of Social Services was instructed not to enter information into a computer system in order to hide a case backlog from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, according to public records obtained this week by the News & Record. 

A backlog of 8,100 unprocessed food stamp case recertifications came to light in March. Guilford County DSS Director Robert Williams said at the time the department was not aware of the backlog because of a problem with the processing software.

Interviews conducted during an internal investigation show at least some department members were aware of the backlog and were told to hide it. Some of the information comes from witness statements and can’t be corroborated, according to the investigation report.

    It is obviously time to have a house cleaning a the DSS in Guilford County. It is also time the entire food stamp program get a hard and immediate look from the Congress of the United States. With 47 MILLION people getting food stamps and at the same time free breakfast and lunch being provided to all school age children something is seriously wrong with our system. Those that really need can’t get a dime and those that don’t deserve buy two or three buggies full of groceries at a time.

  • Duh Huh

    People of Guilford Co need to open their eyes and stand up to their political correctness. It’s has really put the entire county in a hole of debt. The Woolworth museum is a money pit, the school system of pumping good money after bad, the DSS, the crooked politicians and all the other dirty deals at the tax payers expense. Hmm, notice they all seem to look alike. They have completely ruined a great city by trying to satisfy a race that can’t help themselves let alone help others. They are all on the take. Now, let see how bad they trash me for speaking the truth.
