Or something like that. Odd, odd story in the UPoR about Gov. Pat McCrory telling Charlotte city officials that if they build the street car line, they may not get state money for the for the light-rail extension to UNC-Charlotte. And Mayor Anthony Foxx in turn responded by telling the Gov. rather bluntly that it’s none of his business. And some street car supporters are now wondering out loud whether city council’s surprise decision not to move ahead with a Capital Improvement Program that included the street car back in June was a result of McCrory’s interference.
Oh, and all this while Pat McCrory has only been in office for less than month, which makes you wonder what sort of weirdness we can expect done the road been the pols really start to not like each other.
In any case, you can read more about it here.
