The elephant in the room at yesterday’s UNC meeting

Be sure to check out today’s edition of the Fitzsimon File to get the lowdown on yesterday’s meeting of the “UNC Advisory Committee on Strategic Directions.”

The most optimistic spin: People who care about the future of higher education in our state will have their works cut out for them if they want to resist the folks committed to dismantling it.

    Mr. Fitzsimon,

    Your condemnation of Fred Eshelman and others was foolish. Fred Eshelman, whom I have never met, is an outstanding citizen of Wilmington and a major contributor and supporter of multiple endeavors and causes in Wilmington and elsewhere.

    You mention that he wishes to dismantle the UNC institution. Do you realize that he has contributed tens of millions to UNC and the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is named after him ? Do you really feel these acts preceded his intended dismantling of the UNC institution ?

    Mr. Fitzsimon, you are an embarrassment to N.C. Policy Watch, which has lost considerable credibility in the Wilmington area with such divisive statements. It appears that people such as yourself are more the problem than the solution when it comes to some sort of solidarity in this country.

    Dennis Smith
