Dan Blue [1]There were many compelling arguments voiced this afternoon by opponents of the Senate bill to renege on the Dix Park contract [2]. One expecially powerful moment, however, occurred at around the 40 minute mark of this video [3] (you can fast-forward to it) in which Senator Dan Blue ticks off a list of just some of the local governments around North Carolina that are currently leasing large tracts of state land for $1 (i.e. $499,999 less than the City of Raleigh would pay annually for the Dix campus).

The include: Alamance County, Avery County, Carteret County, Guilford County, Hyde County, Morehead City and Yadkin County.

Watch Blue’s entire speech by clicking here [3] — it commences at around the 23:30 mark.
