McCrory gets more outside prep help for NC gov


Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina Gov.-elect Pat McCrory is getting more help from CEOs, former and current state legislators and high-level ex-government bureaucrats to approach his incoming administration.

McCrory's transition team has now expanded to include a dozen working groups that are meeting in person or by phone at least weekly to evaluate state agencies and goals the next governor wants to meet. The groups are supposed to report to McCrory and recommend how agencies can run more efficiently once the Republican gets sworn in Jan. 5.

McCrory spokesman Chris Walker said Monday the working groups have a sprinkling of both the private and public sector. Democrats also are participating. Walker said McCrory is still aiming to complete his Cabinet before the Legislature convenes Jan. 9.

McCrory was elected governor five weeks ago.
