Regarding the April 10 news article “McCrory seeks vote on bonds”: Certainly not to be cynical of Gov. Pat McCrory’s request for infrastructure bond funding, but it does strike me as interesting that it is fine for him to choose an off-year election when voter turnout is notoriously low, when he applauded the legislature for refusing to permit Wake County to vote on its transportation bond issue until 2016, which happens to be a statewide election with traditionally much higher turnouts.
One wonders if the adage “what’s good for the goose ought to be good for the gander” does not apply.
