Foxx vs. McCrory on streetcar funding

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.

    are there pertinent blogs about?

    For example: NC installed a new leader of the State Highway Patrol and he didn’t cry like a baby. THATS NEW! I thought all NC State Troopers whined and cried, it seemed what they trained for, it seemed like their job. (Seriously, Good luck for the new guy, there’s a lot of stains that need washing and I sincerely hope he can pull it off, or get a few loads done before they’re on to him.)

    And I drive-by here to see plane schedules(?) and street cars (trying to be helpfully blunt – lose the thumb typing, it’s not working for you.)
