Ive criticized him in the past over light rail… But the Charlotte Observer’s Steve Harrison is doing fantastic work of late exposing transportation corruption in N.C.
McClatchy’s motto – Truth to Power – seems to be Harrison’s guiding vision, here:
First, it was an expose on Senator Tony Rand’s stranglehold over DOT.
Then, it was an expose on Senator David Hoyle and ethics questions surrounding Hoyle’s support for the Garden Parkway.
Good work, Steve. The citizens of N.C. are better off due to your work.
(P.S.: I write this not as an ideological shill, but as a citizen.)
