Carolyn Davis: State snubs

May 15, 2013 

State snubs

As a resident who loves North Carolina and wants to see the economy of our state get better, I was most disappointed to read in the May 14 Under the Dome column that U.S. Rep. G.K. Butterfield, a Wilson Democrat, is having a $2,500 fundraiser on the island of Bermuda. We have a beautiful state with many options for a beautiful location – why not raise funds here and support our economy?

The same goes for Sen. Richard Burr who is raising funds in Virginia. We do have beautiful golf courses in North Carolina.

Disappointed in Republicans and Democrats.
