UNCC dinner gets a surprise visitor

UNC Charlotte Chancellor Phil Dubois got a surprise visitor Wednesday night when he hosted a dinner in Raleigh for Mecklenburg County's legislative delegation.

Gov. Pat McCrory stopped by to say hello.

"It was really, really nice," said Betty Doster, a special assistant to Dubois. "He's got a great relationship with the chancellor."  

McCrory's visit brought two of the state's top officials to the meeting. House Speaker Thom Tillis, a Cornelius Republican, was there with 14 other county lawmakers.

Dubois was in town ahead of today's UNC Board of Governors meeting. The school is pushing for state help in promoting its data analytics program.

The growing university of 26,000 also has been promoting its regional ties. This week the six UNCC graduates in the state House posed together for a picture. The five men all wore their UNCC green ties.

McCrory needs to get gas prices down in NC.

Why are prices going up again so high? This has to be stopped. Is not America producing more of its own oil now?

Keep real estate values down. Don't give extortionist crook county tax appraisers/tax departments any incentive to raise property values. The Bush housing bubble was a fraud and tax depts loved it.

Cut NC gas tax being the highest in the nation. Get gas prices in NC as low as SC just over the line. Carowinds is the best and 20 cents a gal cheaper.

Eliminate the asinine emissions testing on all vehicles that is a total waste and does nothing to help the atmosphere when millions of trucks and jets create most of the carbon air and not required to be tested not to mention only 49 counties test for emission while 51 are are not required. Stupidity.

Try to get health care costs down at least 50% since its a rip off and obama care is a joke and does nothing to stop rising costs.

Why does the Observer show keep printing the worthless trashy spew of hater racist Leonard Pitts and why are lib perv punks like him from the Miami Herald so suddenly interested in the success of the Republican Party like so many other lib scum media? Pitts is n acknowledged low life muslim sympathizer who left his wife and kids as an admitted homo crackhead a few yrs ago who never never stops hating heteros or non-libs. Go back to California you AIDS infested freak and die a painful death. Nobody needs your idiot dumb ass advice.
