Gov. Pat McCrory, center, laughs along with outgoing N.C. Budget Director Lee Roberts, right, after it was announced that Roberts is leaving to go into the private sector during a press conference held at the Governor's Mansion in Raleigh on Jan. 7, 2015. He will be succeeded by Andrew T. Heath, who has been chairman of the North Carolina Industrial Commission. Incoming Secretary of Revenue Jeffrey Epstein is at left. McCrory also announced that Revenue Secretary Lyons Gray would be moving to the Utilities Commission, and would be replaced at the head of Revenue by Jeffrey M. Epstein, who has been the department's chief operating officer.
Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Jan. 9-10.
Intra-party divisions, a surprise change-up in the governor’s administration, controversy with a charter schools report, police body camera questions – a packed episode and plenty for the Domecast team to sort out.
The panelists also offer lightning takes on the standout newsmakers in our Headliners of the Week segment.
It’s a great roundtable hosted by Colin Campbell of The News & Observer with N&O colleagues Lynn Bonner and Craig Jarvis alongside Patrick Gannon and Benjamin Brown of the Insider State Government News Service.
