Great news for Charlotte. Even though the city pays its city manager substantially lower than comparable cities, Charlotte has hired a new city manager to replace the retiring Pam Syfert.
Curt Walton, who was one of three men under consideration for the job, was selected in a unanimous final decision last night by the Charlotte City Council. The other two men had their supporters and both brought great qualities to the table, but the final unanimous decision was for Curt Walton.
Today at 12:30 you can meet Sam and Blue South outside General Assembly Room 1027 to help demand answers from Less Merit. Somebody please call us with details! I can't make it and really wish I could be there.
If you're in Charlotte, Working Families Win is having a rally to promote a state earned income tax credit. It will be at 1:00pm outside the IRS office at 6635 Executive Circle.
