— Governor-elect Beverly Perdue said Wednesday she has created an online “suggestion box” for North Carolina residents to provide ideas and feedback as she develops her administration.

“During this transition period, I believe it’s important for citizens to be engaged in their government and to have input. This is a way for them to do that,” Perdue said in a statement.

Perdue, who will be sworn in on Jan. 10 as the state's first female governor, has vowed to transform the way state government operates.
