It may be Christmas time, but Gov.-Elect Pat McCrory isn’t taking it easy. On Thursday he stepped before the microphones and announced six more key appointments to his executive team – three more Cabinet secretaries and three top-level aides. You’ll also hear McCrory reiterate his goals for customer service and ethics. Then McCrory answers reporters’ questions about guns in schools and he offers perspective on his approach during his days as mayor of Charlotte, where he says public safety officers were posted at schools. Then host Donna Martinez revisits her conversation with Democratic consultant Gary Pearce, who offers North Carolina Democrats advice for being productive members of the legislative minority, and for working toward the day they can regain power. That’s followed by a discussion with Dallas Woodhouse of Americans for Prosperity North Carolina. Martinez and Woodhouse delve into the Republican takeover of state government, what it means for AFP’s policy push, and Gov. Perdue’s actions during the waning days of her term. And finally, Bob Orr, former North Carolina Supreme Court Justice, gives us background on the newest member of the high court, Perdue appointee Cheri Beasley, who will move over from the Court of Appeals to replace retired Justice Patricia Timmons-Goodson.
