Nashville, Tenn. — Gov. Pat McCrory on Sunday was named to the executive committee of the National Governors Association for the 2014-15 year, his office announced.
McCrory was named during the association's summer meeting in Nashville, Tenn.
“While gridlock prevails in Washington, D.C., governors must act, rather than talk, and that’s what we’re doing in North Carolina to provide the economic and educational opportunities our state needs to prosper," McCrory said in a statement. "I look forward to bipartisan discussions with my fellow governors about the results that come with making tough decisions, keeping a close eye on the taxpayers’ wallets and looking beyond traditional ideas and approaches.”
McCrory served on the NGA's economic and development and commerce committee during the 2013-14 year.
