Progress NC Action statement on McCrory concession

Time to start repairing North Carolina’s reputation on HB2, public education, and the environment

RALEIGH — Progress NC Action released the following statement on Monday in response to Pat McCrory’s concession to Governor-elect Roy Cooper:

“After wasting plenty of time and taxpayer dollars with frivolous complaints and bogus accusations, we are thankful that the McCrory campaign has finally acknowledged Governor-elect Cooper’s victory,” said Gerrick Brenner, executive director of Progress NC Action. “Now it’s time to move forward and for the General Assembly to start repairing North Carolina’s reputation by repealing HB2, raising teacher pay to the national average, and looking out for people instead of polluters. North Carolina voters supported these priorities when they elected Roy Cooper, and it’s time to move North Carolina forward instead of backwards.”
