WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– One local employee of the film industry is taking matters of the tax incentive into her own hands.
Dale Williams sent a letter to Governor Pat McCrory asking for a meeting to discuss the future of film employees in our state.
She has been in the film industry for 25 years and she says it’s time for the governor to take a stand.
She’s asking for a one on one meeting with the governor and members of the film industry.
Saying the impact and importance of the film industry to the state of North Carolina and Wilmington is really undeniable.
“It’s not like I can just start over in another industry. This is a business I am very passionate about so I will stay in it,” said Williams, “It just may be that I’ll have to leave North Carolina to do it.”
At this point Williams has not heard back from Gov. McCrory about the meeting she’s requesting.
What she wants is simple; to see those film incentives included in this year’s budget.
We reached out to the governor’s office for comment and have yet to get a response.
