Please don't begin your term with a bunch of, expensive, soon to be forgotten, events. I understand that you would want to celebrate the election (and I do congratulate you) but, we (taxpayers) just can't afford to pay for (an) expensive inauguration event(s).

his first official act is to accept the resignation of the Secretary of Commerce who was so inept he could not bring home any of the major projects which went to other states; yet was able to plan an extended "fact finding tour" to Paris France where he and his 5 stooges all enjoyed over priced bottles of french wine and made a mockery of their per diem for expenses.

Get sworn in,and lets get to work creating jobs in North Carolina

I'm with you, jj.

Save the Tax payer money and stay in Raleigh. Unless you are going to personally fund this out of your own pockets.
