How is it possible for one to "reflects on future"? Interesting headline.

McCrory played politics when he gave teachers raises, but failed to give fair raises to state employees.

McCrory destroyed the Wilmington movie industry, HB2 costs millions of dollars of lost revenue for cities around the state, and you would only see him just making an appearance after a hurricane. He also tried to do anything he could to protect and nurture Duke Energy over the people of NC.

McCrory was in a bad position from the very start. It is hard to follow up an act like Dumplin' and Sleazley. But to be honest here in NC we should limit any governor to one term.
Let them do the damage and then move on.

McCrory: A legend in his own mind.
HOWEVER: He is not solely to blame for the messes in this state, as they continue to mount. The bad thing about being a governor (or president) is that it is so easy to point a finger at ONE person than at an entire governing body. The sooner we can get this UNCONSTITUTIONAL legislature out of office, the sooner the UNCONSTITUTIONAL legislation will stop.

Governor McCrory, YOU did an excellent job and you are to be commended. You are indeed correct, with the state of politics today with the PC crowd, snowflakes and the Liberals going wild... you hardly stood a chance. I as well hope that you run for office AGAIN, and with the PATHETIC Roy Cooper in office, the voters of N.C. will see the error of their ways if they haven't already. For some to think that Barry Obama did ANYTHING positive for the State, well.... "what is understood, doesn't need to be discussed." Barry left town, and his "legacy" left shortly on the heels of Hillary.

McCrory started out strong. I really thought he might be a good governor but then he allowed politics, money and greed to get in the way.
This is supported by how he handled the ash ponds, how he supported HB2 (which failed legal challenges), and a slew of other things.
If he would have focused on what he campaigned to do, he would have been immensely successful with both Democrats and Republicans.
You paid the price for your decisions. I hope you learned from them.
Robert Swiger Sr. Jun 17, 9:01 p.m.
Governor, you did an outstanding job, wish you were still in office.

Gov. McCrory, That is the first blunt statement regarding HB2 and those screamers harassing the Governor's Mansion I have read that makes any sense, having watched it unfold walking my dog each day. I witnessed your direct attempts to positively impact the lives of addicts and those suffering mental health issues, and their families, with an inclusive, productive aporoach. For that, in my view you exemplify the State Motto "To Be Rather Than To Seem". Because experience teaches the reliability of the adage "tigers do not change their stripes" only patience and time will reveal substance of current political solutions. That said, you've earned my vote next time, the hard way. Thank you for your service to NC, even if those shouting loudest fail to acknowledge. God speed, Deb Newton, Attorney

Mccrory certainly knows how to impress himself. He is out of touch with reality and he can thank Obama for nc financial success along with the top notch universities in our state that he and his ilk constantly try to destroy. The people of nc hopefully see that enlightenment leads to success. If only we had more guns in the hands of adults (18) that can't even be trusted to drink.. please sit down mccrory.
Clarence Drumgoole Jun 17, 1:57 p.m.
McCrory is a disaster. He brought disgrace to a once great "State". Trump following in his footsteps. "Shame"!
Albert Holmes Jun 17, 9:41 a.m.
I wish we could go back and change that day. Because Cooper is the biggest mistake that NC has ever made. Run again McCrory because you got my vote and support !

"...problem solving." Ha!
