Jason Beverly: Dollar’s rant shows truth behind center’s closing

Regarding Rep. Nelson Dollar’s March 3 letter “Nothing to show”: I find it at once disturbing and refreshing that the esteemed representative of N.C. District 36 would use a public forum to call out a state employee as he did when he wrote, “Nichol is nothing more than a strident left-winger with no fresh ideas.”

While the choice of words may represent Dollar’s feelings, it is unbecoming of a public servant to vent such personal bias while arguing for objectivity in regard to decisions concerning the closing of Nichol’s Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity.

However, it is likewise refreshing to hear the truth about why the UNC Board of Governors is closing the center.
