Carbon taxes, Durham crime, transparency, and other items of interest

Websites for WRAL Television, the News & Observer, and the Fayetteville Observer all highlighted John Locke Foundation Vice President for Research Roy Cordato‘s participation in the Heartland Institute’s letter campaign against carbon taxes.

The N&O referenced JLF in an article about founding chairman Art Pope’s appointment as Gov.-elect Pat McCrory’s new deputy budget director. The N&O‘s “Under the Dome” blog cited JLF in a reference to analysis from Democratic political consultant Gary Pearce. Syndicated columnist Scott Moneyham referenced JLF in a piece on efforts to fight methamphetamine labs. A letter in the Salisbury Post discussed JLF’s efforts to promote government transparency. (Just a few months ago the John Locke Foundation recognized Rowan County government as being one of the most transparent government entities in the state. Transparency is a critical ingredient in the recipe for good government.)

The blog cited Director of Research and Education Studies Terry Stoops‘ recent blog entry on education historian Diane Ravitch. Becki Gray continues her semiweekly politics and public policy updates for WTSB Radio listeners.
