One week after the election, other issues are attracting the media’s attention again. The Charlotte Observer sought John Locke Foundation Fiscal Policy Analyst Joseph Coletti‘s opinion about the potential impact on businesses from a proposal to delay Mecklenburg County’s property revaluation. John Hood offered the Winston-Salem Journal his critique of the city’s discussion of offering targeted incentives to Wells Fargo. WRAL Television picked up on Carolina Journal Executive Editor Don Carrington‘s article about a state transportation board member who failed to disclose his ownership of a business with ties to the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles. Bloggers continued to cite CJ contributor Karen McMahan‘s article about Democrats studying a possible Social Security takeover of private 401(k) retirement accounts. (JLF staff have documented at least 40 different links to blogs that have posted the piece.) The Jesse Helms Center has announced that N.C. History Project Director Troy Kickler will present a teacher workshop in January on the topic “Anti-Federalism, Federalism, and Liberty in North Carolina.” JLF also earned some free attention on the popular Powerline blog, when blogger Scott Johnson mentioned his appearance at the 2006 Carolina FreedomNet conference.
