That’s a good first step, but the more important next step is to ensure the Rural Center doesn’t receive another dime of taxpayer money.
That’s the crux of this Civitas press release on the issue.
The head of the Civitas Institute said Thursday that the recent state audit of the North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center should serve as notice to state budget writers that the controversial organization should no longer receive taxpayer dollars.
“Hall’s resignation was a necessary step. In addition, however, the Rural Center should not receive one more dime in taxpayer money,” (Civitas President Francis) De Luca said.
