New N.C. ABC Commission Members In Place

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Gov. Pat McCrory has completed his replacement of the entire North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission.

McCrory announced Friday that Kevin Green of Greensboro and Joel Keith of Wake Forest have joined the three-member board, which regulates how alcohol is sold and distributed in the state.

The two join former Lt. Gov. Jim Gardner of Rocky Mount, who was named commission chairman last week by the new governor.

Green is a real estate agent previously serving in regional and state Realtor leadership roles. Keith is police chief for the state Agriculture Department and previously served as president of the North Carolina Association of ABC Boards.
