Why Not

Look to Raleigh? When many small towns, in the 1980's were losing hundreds and thousands of jobs, former Governor Jim Hunt led the charge to bring in new industry. While a lot of focus was on the Research Triangle, former Governor Hunt went on the road soliciting out of state and foriegn industries to relocate to the small "mill" towns. He put together programs in which the local community colleges tooled up to provide the training needed, by the unemployed, so they could take on the new jobs. That was called leadership. Let's not forget, too, former Vice President Gore's visit to Whiteville when he was touting the internet and the new age which would come to rural areas like Whiteville. Anyone remember his performance at the Whiteville train station? What happened to that? Just for the record, how is R C Soles responsible for this job loss? The housing market did not slump through his efforts. If you're going to point to DC, why not statr with Congressman McIntyre?
