Gov. Pat McCrory’s private dinner with executives from Duke Energy raised a number of questions.
Why couldn’t he extend the same courtesy to the North Carolina voters who live near these damaged sites? Or with upstart companies that would help shift the state to renewable energy while creating high-paying jobs?
What did McCrory, who worked for Duke Energy for 29 years, discuss during this private dinner? Was there any discussion of pending legislation dealing with renewable energy or with the state’s response to new federal clean power rules?
Unfortunately, McCrory has not been forthcoming with details about this dinner, broadly stating that they discussed topics such as the economy, the environment and job creation.
I’m sure that there are a number of environmental organizations, renewable energy providers and North Carolina residents who would love to be part of that dinner conversation.
