"McCrory appoints Tata, two others to cabinet posts
By Mark Binker and Laura Leslie


Gov.-elect Pat McCrory appointed former Wake County schools Superintendent Tony Tata as his secretary of transportation, completing his eight-member cabinet Thursday.

Along with Tata, McCrory named former state Rep. Bill Daughtridge as his secretary of administration and Sharon Decker, who is currently the chief executive of The Tapestry Group, a faith-based nonprofit organization, as secretary of commerce. Decker previously held other corporate positions, including as a vice president for Duke Energy Corp., where McCrory worked for more than two decades.

The trio announced Thursday complete McCrory's cabinet after two rounds of similar announcements in December, during which he named other key players like Budget Director Art Pope and Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos.

McCrory said he would swear in his cabinet Saturday after he takes the oath of office himself. "

snip....and groan!

3. We are in for a heap o' hurt for the next year or 3.

I read this recently and immediately felt dizzy and nauseated.

My only hope is that this GOP cabal screws up so bad that every single one of them will be tossed out of office.

Too bad we'll be stuck with the crappy, horrible legislation they'll leave us with.

6. Looks like I'm going to need to put away some gas money and splurge on a good pair of walking shoes.

It's going to be a rough ride my friends!
