"It will make North Carolina more competitive in attracting new businesses to come to our state," McCrory said of the tax bill that passed this summer.
The governor starts the video with a nod toward problems the state is still facing one year in to his administration.
"People are hurting. Not enough people in North Carolina are working, and we need jobs," McCrory said.
After giving an oblique nod to the fight over unemployment law changes, he goes on to tout North Carolina's lowering unemployment rate.
"When I had the great honor of being sworn in as your governor, North Carolina's unemployment (rate) was the fifth-highest in the nation, at 9.5 percent. Today, it's down to 8 percent," McCrory said.
At 8 percent, North Carolina's unemployment rate is the 13th-highest in the nation.
Like any PR piece on behalf of a sitting chief executive, the McCrory video is built to make its subject look good. Although it acknowledges "differences" with political rivals, McCrory is unreservedly upbeat about the Republican-led government agenda.
"Next year, we'll build on the progress we made this year in revitalizing our economy, streamlining government, improving our children's education and rebuilding our transportation infrastructure," McCrory said.
