As the state government contemplates another targeted corporate tax incentive package for the mysterious “Project Soccer” in Brunswick County, John Locke Foundation Vice President for Research and Resident Scholar Roy Cordato helped Wilmington-area radio listeners learn about the problems associated with incentives deals during an appearance with Curtis Wright on the WAAV/WFNC morning radio program. Meanwhile, Wilmington-area radio listeners also heard from Fergus Hodgson, Director of Fiscal Policy Studies, who joined Chad Adams on WLTT to discuss unemployment numbers, red-light cameras, and the latest round of proposed federal “stimulus.” Hodgson and Mitch Kokai, Director of Communications, offered comments for a Daily Tar Heel article on President Obama’s efforts to boost his re-election chances in North Carolina. The Wilkes Journal Patriot covered the latest report from Terry Stoops, Director of Education Studies, comparing North Carolina’s high school graduation rate increase with an even larger increase in the state community college remediation rate. The News & Observer‘s “WakeEd” blog cited Stoops’ Locker Room commentary on accreditation for the Durham County public schools. The Durham Herald-Sun consulted Stoops for an editorial about the future of state-funded pre-kindergarten programs. The Heritage Foundation’s “Insider Online” promoted a report from Michael Sanera, Director of Research and Local Government Studies, on Buncombe County’s proposed sales-tax increase.
