Renewed responsibility

Throughout this week, the editorial boards at The Charlotte Observer [1], the Winston-Salem Journal [2], and the Greensboro News & Record [3] have offered their advice for North Carolina’s Governor-elect.

This morning, the Greenville Daily Reflector offers its take:

[4]…with that victory and control of government comes great responsibility. The state’s economy continues to flounder, as much by its inability to restore jobs lost in textiles, manufacturing and agriculture as to the national recession that began in 2007. Rebuilding that foundation will require a great deal of heavy lifting and innovative solutions. It will also necessitate the reform of the state’s antiquated tax code.

While Republicans are likely to advance the cause of limited government, there is a great deal of investment desperately needed from the mountains to the coast. Schools, roads, mental health and other social services continue to need funding and have been struggling for years. Even as the new governor and his party’s leadership work to reduce the tax burden, they must not turn their backs on those pressing public needs.

You can read the Reflector’s full editorial here [5].
