WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Making his first trip to Wilmington since taking office, Governor Pat McCrory helped break ground on a state-of-the-art addition to the campus of Cape Fear Community College.
McCrory, Mayor Bill Saffo and County Commission Chairman Woody White joined CFCC officials and board members turning dirt at the future site of the Humanities and Fine Arts Center, set to open in Spring of 2015. The center will include three levels of classroom space, along with a 1,500 seat performing arts center that leaders say will "transform the downtown area". Money for the project is coming from a bond referendum approved by voters in 2008.
"I know this as a former mayor, performing arts centers belong in the center city," said McCrory in his remarks before the ceremony. "You're going to make Charleston and Augusta feel second-class. We're going to take their travel and tourism dollars up here in North Carolina."
After the event, McCrory sat down with WECT's Jon Evans to talk about his first months in office, and his first budget proposal. "There was much more of an operational breakdown in how state government runs than we ever anticipated, especially in Health and Human Services, said McCrory. "It's literally in the billions of dollars, and also in the upkeep of state facilities and information systems. I anticipated spending my first eleven weeks on creating a vision and a strategy and new policies. But I've had to really concentrate on fixing broken operations of state government."
