Gov. Pat McCrory isn’t the only elected official decorating his digs for the Christmas season.
Lt. Gov. Dan Forest is also getting out the greenery a block or so up Blount Street at his offices in the 1882 Hawkins-Hartness House. He posted a photo this week showing his staff decorating the house at 8 p.m., well past state government quitting time.
Forest will open the house to the public from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday to show off the results. The open house is also a chance to check out the upgrades he’s made to the building using donated materials.
The house is at 310 N. Blount St. No word on whether Forest plans to follow McCrory’s lead and display his favorite vinyl records this year.
