More confusion about McCrory’s position on Perdue’s plan for Dix land

The confusion about Gov-elect McCrory’s position on turning the Dorothea Dix land into a park continues. Under the Dome reports this morning that McCrory’s name appears on a list of names on the Dix Visionaries Advisory Council that supports the park.

Yesterday Gary Pearce said on Talking About Politics that a reliable source told him that Perdue ran her proposal for the park by McCrory and Art Pope and believed they both supported it, only to have McCrory come out against it after Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger and House Speaker Thom Tillis announced their opposition.

Hard to know what to make of all this but McCrory’s folks would be well-served to clear it up for us. Flip-flopping before you are even sworn in is not the best way to start your administration.

    When McCrory was mayor of Charlotte, he said that he wished Charlotte had the same opportunity as Raleigh to preserve 300 acres for an urban park.

    Democrats aren’t the only politicians allowed to “evolve” on positions. Besides we have to place the criminally insane someplace……………….besides Raleigh.
