Perdue Talking Issues On The Road

Gov.-elect Beverly Perdue wants to talk publicly about biotechnology, the economy and other issues before taking office Jan. 10.

The outgoing lieutenant governor is holding the first of several round-table meetings with leaders in a range of fields starting Monday in Research Triangle Park. There, she'll meet with business and education experts in the state's growing biotech industry.

On Tuesday, Perdue will be in Charlotte for a meeting on the economy with Duke Energy chief executive Jim Rogers, Charlotte Bobcats owner Bob Johnson and university chancellor Phil Dubois.

    Bev Perdue will be the most unqualified Governor that we have ever had. She can't even pronounce North Carolina properly. She only got elected because she is a democrat and that seemed to be the party of choice this election.

    Bev, for Gods sake please meet with all the rock stars, team owners, hip-hoppers, movie stars etc. But dont meet with the people of the state. Oh, dont forget Sharpton and Jessie, you will need their input.
