Wait Before Judging
Yes, elections do have consequences. To paraphrase the president, “The Republicans won.” For the first time in nearly 150 years, the Republicans control the North Carolina government.
It only makes sense to change the membership of “key boards and commissions.” New blood and those “who are more like-minded and willing to carry out the philosophy of the new administration” may improve the board’s and commission’s performance for the benefit of North Carolina.
Your unsubstantiated claim (“Ugly Power Grab in the Legislature,” Feb. 8) that “It also does a grave disservice to the state and its people in any number of unwise and ill-advised ways,” cannot be substantiated beforehand.
Why not wait and see what happens, before making a judgment? Did not Gov. Perdue ignore her own rule in appointing two of the axed judges?
It is understandable that the editorial board is unhappy with the election results in North Carolina, as are many of us about the re-election of the current president.
That is how the cookie crumbles. North Carolina will undoubtedly be better served by a Republican administration than the United States will be by the current administration, given the results of the past four years.
