Yes, I was invited to N.C. Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson’s February 19 dinner at the Raleigh Convention Center. No, I did not attend. (I spoke at the Cumberland County Men’s Republican Club meeting that evening. Great folks in Fayetteville!)
WRAL has a database of invitations, RSVPs, and invoices for the event, which used no taxpayer funds. They found that only 25 percent of those who were invited chose to attend the event. Scandalous!
C’mon, WRAL, was this really worth your time?
