MCCRORY DRAWS CONTRAST WITH COOPER ON INFRASTRUCTURE

In the Legislature, Roy Cooper helped write the bill that took $21 million out of the infrastructure repairs fund to spend the money on pork barrel projects for politicians like $300,000 for a pottery museum. That’s sneaky politics.

In the new conservative budget, Governor McCrory put $150 million into infrastructure repairs and ended the transfer of highway money into other things. That’s honest leadership.
