Enough is Enough

The N and O is absolutely right.  North Carolinians have to demand that public officials – not just those elected to office but those appointed as well- begin to think of their responsibility to the people of the state and not to enhancing their power or their pocket books. It should not be limited solely to the state level but should include city and county officials as well. 

People should not be named to a board or commission solely or even largely because they have done favors for candidates. We need expertise and experience and a commitment to serving the state and there are lots of North Carolinians who can do that – not just the few who make or raise large money for campaigns
