Regarding the Sept. 18 news article “ McCrory wants to borrow $1B”: I applaud the intention of the governor to borrow $1 billion to improve the infrastructure of our state.
I am sure that this investment of public funds will enhance investment in our state for the development of capital in industry and commerce. The increased tax revenues that ensue will more than offset the cost to taxpayers of interest and amortization of the bonds, even providing additional income for public purposes.
Perhaps one day our governor will recognize that an investment in human capital will produce even more beneficial results for all. I dream that one day I will see an N&O headline “Governor wants to borrow $1B for education!”
