    These folks may be the kitchen cabinet, but the head chef is missing.

    The head chef is Pat McCrory, saying otherwise has no basis other than repeating your own imaginations.

    It’s funny that in just a few days McCrory has already identified one of the greatest weaknesses in NC state government… a completely antiquated IT system. Democrats have wasted millions of dollars on a patchwork of systems that are not coordinated between all of the various agencies, and are way behind the times. We may finally get some things done instead of just talking about it.

    It is funny … and remarkable than anyone thinks this is “news.”

    Everyone knows and has known that the state’s IT infrastructure is being held together by bailing wire … but there hasn’t been funding to run systems in place while also spending to upgrade. Maybe if we fire another 10,000 teachers, we can get a new ERP system for Tony Tata?

    Will be interesting to see which “Friends of Pope” get the hundred million dollar contracts to rebuild the systems and manage the integration.

    It’s ridiculous to say that there hasn’t been funding to upgrade these systems over the last 10 or 15 years. We spent over $100 million trying to upgrade the Medicaid system, and ended up with something written in a 1970’s language. We spent over $75 million with a simple payroll system that still has problems, and a huge amount on an unemployment system that still doesn’t work. It has been a simple matter of mismanagement, bad decisions , and the wrong vendors.
