Dearest Citizens of Charlotte:
You'll forgive us if we're having a hard time getting to the bottom of your perpetual mayor, Pat McCrory. From here in the hinterlands of North Carolina, it looks like Hizzoner has never had much interest in the rest of the state, except as a revenue stream for his employer, Duke Energy. And his bank-rolled campaign for governor seems more about his personal ego and his corporate cronies than dealing with the real challenges our citizens are facing.
For example, Mayor Pat recently reported that he doesn't know what he thinks about oil and gas exploration off the coast of North Carolina. Doesn't know - or is afraid to say? And then there's Pat's "they" problem. Aside from his welcome support for transit in Charlotte, I can't discover anything to like about the man.
