Four NC governors – Jim, Jim, Bev and Pat – headed to Greensboro Tuesday

Posted by Rob Christensen on October 28, 2013 

Most of North Carolina's governors will be in Greensboro Tuesday evening to help raise money for a new non profit economic forum.

Gov. Pat McCrory and three former governors – Republican Jim Martin and Democrats Jim Hunt and Bev Perdue – will attend a reception benefiting the Governor John Motley Morehead Forum for Economic Development. The only living former governor missing will be Democrat Mike Easley, who will be in Dallas.

The event is at Blandwood, the 1846 home of Governor Morehead, who was governor from 1841-1845 and is generally recognized as one of the state’s better governors. The fundraiser will raise money for forums on issues such as transportation, education, manufacturing and architecture-preservation.

The forum is an initiative of Preservation Greensboro Inc. The honorary chairman is Martin and the founding chairman is Henry Isaacson, chairman of the Piedmont International Airport.

The event costs $250 per couple.
