Bill Brawley gets choice post

In the crunch of legislation, and legislative wrangling, at the end of last week, one announcement was overlooked. Rep. Bill Brawley was named a co-chair of the influential House Finance Committee.

House Speaker Thom Tillis named the Matthews Republican to the vacant post on Friday.

It capped a busy session for Brawley. He was a House sponsor of bills to help the Carolina Panthers and to create an authority for Charlotte Douglas International Airport, a bill passed and then repealed late last week. He also shepherded Gov. Pat McCrory's transportation overhaul to passage through the House and Senate.

"(Brawley) has become a very effective legislator in just his second term," Tillis said in a statement. "He handles complex issues in truthful and honorable ways, and his ability to build consensus around legislation is continually impressive."

Said Brawley: "I'm honored. I think it's an expression of confidence in my ability to get good legislation done.”

Brawley replaces another Brawley. GOP Rep. Robert Brawley of Mooresville held the Finance Post until turning in his gavel in May after publicly criticizing Tillis.

Bill deserves an award for his services to the two Jerrys (Orr and Richardson). The Jerry award repurposed to salute those who are adept at using public resources to their own ends...

An expression of confidence in his ability to get good legislation done? What good legislation? For a legislature whose number one priority was to 'create jobs' and 'bring jobs to North Carolina,' I'd say 'getting good legislation done' was the ultimate failure.

I always liked Bill, but he has shown his true colors this past session. He is my Representative and he will probably still be my Representative for some time, but not because of me. The voter suppression bill sent me over the edge as far as he goes.

Great, now he sould be able to stop the HOT lane on I-77 like he has been claiming to try to do for the past few months, oh wait I forgot, he was the one who actually proposed and convinced other politicians and DOT members to support even though they all say that it will have no impact on traffic and will actually decrease the job growth in the Iredell-Meklenburg area.

his ability to build consensus around legislation

This means his ability to into a dark back room with Thom and a few others and decided which consensus they are going to impose on everyone in their path.

McCrory offers cookies but the whiner crybabies demand a free blank check instead.

Anti-cookie protesters include many dangerous bigoted racist liberal criminal media writers including select Charlotte Observer lawbreaker jailbirds arrested and booked in the past for breaking the 1st amendment and civil law violations with their violent unlawful disturbances creating chaos and mayhem government overthrow revolution. Marxism defined.

These unruly violence prone Marxists need to read up and comprehend the Framers commands.

FIRST AMENDMENT ratified 1789

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The "peaceably" is code word and no "wall of separation".

Interesting how Rep Brawley seems to be the pun in lots if the junk legislation coming out of this session. He has not listened to the people re represent and in fact he has gone against the two towns, Matthews and Mint Hil (not to mention Clt) as they continued to ask him to go in different directions. Brawley has been a tool for Tillis and this is his reward. Brawley should focus more on his local community and those that sent him to Raleigh rather than doing the dirty work of some big players in the GA. I wish one of the two mayor's from Matthews orient hill would run against Brawley. They seem to know what their citizens want and would do a much better job.

Detroit a goner and nothing can save it. Chicago on the blink and a goner soon. How fitting and ironic for the socialist peeper in charge who is giddy with delight. Same for ghetto Cleveland and many others inc LA aka Mexico City 2.

Attention NC General Assembly:

It is IMPERATIVE for the Authority to seize perm control of the new Central Piedmont Douglas Int NC/SC Metro Airport now.

We know with 100 million more illegals approved soon to make America a perm socialist 3rd world banana republic ending all steroid abusing professional cheating frivolous pro sports as many more cities including Charlotte succumb to Detroit status with full redistribution as banks are seized and emptied with 6000 Wall St corps raided plus all business and personal assets.
The airports of Americka must be in good hands for safety reasons alone.
The Obama Castro Chavez Jackson Sharpton Holder redistribution plan is squarely on target.
