Christopher K. Behm: Money talks to GOP

Regarding the April 16 news article “Bill proposes priority boarding”: Lest there previously be any doubt, we now know exactly how legislative priorities are currently weighed by the political majority in Raleigh.

Namely, the “complaints from a wealthy Brunswick County resident who owns two houses on Ocracoke and doesn’t like to wait for the ferry” count, while a whole “lot of the people who live on the island’” and who “are not well off by any stretch of the imagination” do not.
