City's Leader and State's Leader Discuss Issues in Charlotte

Posted: Updated:
Today is Day 2 for Charlotte’s new mayor, Dan Clodfelter.

Clodfelter met Governor Pat McCrory at his office.

The two of them served together on city council back in the 1980’s.

Both have experience in local politics and state politics.

The state’s leader and city’s leader got down to business.

“We did talk about issues where the city and state can work together and need to work together,” said Mayor Dan Clodfelter.

“He has experience in the city [and] has a passion for the state,” said Governor Pat McCrory

They talked about many issues from taxes, the economy and who should control the city’s airport.

“My goal is to retain the ownership for the city. Dan and I know it’s important not just for the city but state. We want to resolve it without going to the courts,’ said McCrory.

It was just 2 weeks back when FBI agents busted Former Mayor Patrick Cannon’s office – now, it’s the same officer Mayor Clodfelter sits in.

“It’s not the office who did it but the individual that may have done that activity,” said Clodfelter.

While the scandal may have scarred the city, the focus now is how to push Charlotte forward.

There’s going to be some pain with this process as more facts come out but we have to move the city forward,” said McCrory.

 “We are going to get through this. I like having a homeboy in the governor’s mansion,” said Clodfelter.
