— Governor-elect Pat McCrory will take the oath of office, and therefore take power, at noon on Jan. 5 in the state Capitol building, according to transition staffers speaking on background. 

An official release with more details is expected later today. 

McCrory will still have a slate of official inaugural activities on Jan. 11, when the Junior League of Raleigh will host an inaugural ball, and Jan. 12, when McCrory will give his inauguration speech. 

Full details are expected later today, but transition staff sources speaking on background said that McCrory will attend a closed-press church service before his inauguration. Events are planned during the time between Jan. 5 and Jan. 12 that include the Western Residence.

    cuz the state hiring system is totally corrupt- this blog comes from a 30 yr retiree who used to be in senior management.

    that's why. look this state needs reform from top to bottom, it needs shaking up an a new for a new day. you wana go bact to the tyranny of perdue style state gov ment?

    wake up folks-- north carolina has been in free fall for yrs.........

  • trubtold Nov 20, 10:00 p.m.

    Why has McCrory got a web page for people to send him resumes for state jobs? Why isn't he going through the state personnel system? Sounds like major cronyism and payback to his donors to me. WRAL and other news agencies should jump on this! Want a stste job? Go to Pat's website and skip the state system!!!

    "At least they are trying something."

    Go ahead and try something but don't lie about themethod and results in order to score political points or because of ideology. Students deserve better.

  • Plenty Coups Nov 20, 7:44 p.m.

    "I'm not sure what your idea is to close the (gap) At least they are trying something."

    Trying something to do what? Make students with little parental support start caring about school? The best thing lawmakers could do is to leave education to the educators rather than try meaningless programs to try and make it appear as if they are "reforming" education. NAEP tests show that scores have risen nationally over the years. A better solution would be to look at states with genuinely good scores that are consistent across the grade levels, like Massachusetts, or New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. But they won't do that as those states attract top quality teachers by paying them more.

    Perdue was a joke....McCrory..Show us what you know!!!

  • wildpig777 Nov 20, 6:43 p.m.

    on that day north carolina begins to come out of the darkness...

  • Plenty Coups Nov 20, 6:00 p.m.

    "try again....(Why are other states adopting Florida’s education reforms? Because they work!)"

    States that don't want to spend more and don't want to do what more successful states do try the cheap way, Florida's way. Just fail a huge amount of 3rd graders to try and get better scores the next year. What a load of garbage.
