Earlier this week, the League’s Grassroots Coordinator Vickie Miller arranged for some mayors and mayor pro tems who serve on policy committees to come to Raleigh to discuss a variety of subjects. As a part of the get-together, they got a chance to sit and talk with State Budget Director Lee Roberts. Roberts’ role is pretty much that of Gov. Pat McCrory’s chief financial officer, or that of a city finance director for the entire state.

As we approach the Fourth of July weekend, it is a good time to reflect on our system of government and the purpose of the different levels of government in that system. At the local government level, we often talk about being closest to the people. Unlike the state legislators who go about the business of lawmaking in state capitals and members of Congress who go to Washington, local officials are in their communities more often than not. As most of you know, local government is typically focused on on-the-ground problem-solving and issues that are not that partisan in nature.

At this week’s fourth regional meeting on the future of municipal finance, held in Greenville, 50 people attended to hear Greenville Mayor Allen Thomas, a panel of local officials and League staffer Chris Nida talk state and local taxes, municipal services and needs, and the demographic changes taking place in our state. The meeting drew a strong media contingent from eastern North Carolina, with two television stations and three newspapers covering the event.
