Ed Fritsch: Protected by Perdue

November 30, 2012 

Perdue’s protection

Gov. Beverly Perdue has the opportunity to leave office on a high, long-lasting, nicely pitched note. She can do that by ensuring that when the replacement facilities for the state employees currently occupying the 306-acre Dorothea Dix campus are established, those prized, rolling acres of open space are dedicated to become Dix Park for all to enjoy. As she respectfully waves good-bye to what she rightfully references as the People’s Mansion, she can comfortably whistle that beloved Andy Griffith tune, knowing she protected this unique tract of coveted land from commercial development and added a precious jewel to Sir Walter Raleigh’s crown!
