Wilmington city leaders talked issues with local state legislators Friday. State Representative’s Caroline Justice and Sandra Spaulding Hughes attended the City Hall breakfast. Some of the items discussed included, protecting the city's right to annex and grow the tax base, mental health funding, and a possible sales tax to improve transportation and infrastructure. “The House members, Representatives Sandra Spaulding-Hughes, Danny McComas, myself, and Senator Boseman, meet on a regular basis. As a delegation to this area, we always bring our little agenda from the city of Wilmington and New Hanover County to the Chamber of Commerce and we go over the list to see what we think we can accomplish - what we agree on and what we disagree on,” said Representative Carolyn Justice. After legislators decide what issues to address, they will take them to the General Assembly, which will convene on January 28, 2009.
