I really don’t care what Democrats in the state legislature did 40 years ago. I’m not a native of North Carolina. I live in a 100-family subdivision in South Durham near RTP and most of my neighbors are like me – from other states or other countries. What I do care about is that my vote counts.
I voted to oust our “bathroom bill” governor for someone who will try to stem the fallout from that controversial legislation and get this state on the right track again. The state legislature nullified my vote. That’s wrong.
Furthermore, it’s appalling that the public was ousted from watching the final votes on the legislation gutting our new governor’s authority.
Recently, I posted a note on Facebook to my friends from the five states where my family has lived: “Warning: If you a planning a vacation, looking for a spot to retire or a place for a new business venture, don’t come to North Carolina. The moderate state we thought we moved to is no more.”
