Just who are these guys (and gals) anyway?

The legislative building today had its normal amount of opening day chaos, but added to the confusion was a whole bunch of new legislators strolling around in suits and pantsuits.

To  help relieve some of the mystery of just who is in this new crop of legislators, NC Policy Watch is attempting to do mini-profiles of each new member or those Republican members who went from relative obscurity to leadership positions. Today’s member: Rep. Bill Cook of Chocowinity.

We’ll try to keep all the profiles housed in one spot, for all you legislative insiders in need of a cheat sheet  throughout the session. And also feel free to let reporter Sarah Ovaska (sarah@ncpolicywatch.com) know if there are particular members you’d like to learn more about.
