Dear NCLM Members,
Our thoughts and condolences continue to go out to the residents of Paris and the people of France following the terrible attacks there a week ago today. As so many have said, these were not just terrorist attacks on the City of Paris. These were attacks on the values that bind people together, on the bonds that hold society together. North Carolina cities and towns are a part of those societal bonds, and as a part of a global community of cities, we extend our sympathies and support to the City of Paris.

It’s been about 20 years ago that political consultant James Carville uttered those now famous words, “It’s the economy, stupid.” Mr. Carville, of course, was trying to point out what is really important to voters at the national level. Guess what? The same thing is important to voters at the local level.

New Statewide Poll Shows Positive Views of Municipal Government
More Than 75 Percent of North Carolinians Satisfied with Services and Amenities Provided by Towns and Cities
More than two out of three likely voters in North Carolina approve of the performance of their city or town government, according to new statewide public opinion survey released today by the North Carolina League of Municipalities. The poll also found that 75 percent of state residents would support giving local government more decision-making authority through so-called home rule.

A couple of weeks ago, I joined Gov. Pat McCrory at Stone Mountain State Park near Elkin for his bill signing ceremony for the Connect NC Bond Act of 2015. Many of you probably know by now that the bond package the governor signed includes nearly $310 million for water and sewer. A third of that money will go toward grants, and two-thirds will move through existing revolving, low-interest loan programs.

It was difficult not to come away from last week’s annual conference, CityVision 2015, with a sense of excitement. As I begin my year as President of the League, I am more convinced than ever that cities and towns across our great state are doing amazing things to enhance the lives of their residents. Listening to speakers -- whether fellow NCLM Board members Jennifer Robinson of Cary and Jody McLeod of Clayton look ahead to a vision for municipalities for 2030, or our legislative award winners Sen. Joel Ford and Rep. Stephen Ross discuss working with League staff on our advocacy goals -- it is clear that municipalities individually and collectively are moving in positive directions.
