U.S. Senator Dole Meets Secretly with Gates County Commissioners

GATES COUNTY NC NEWS -- While campaigning in northeastern North Carolina this weekend, North Carolina's U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole made two unexpected stops in Gates County. A predominantly rural Democrat county, which is listed as one of two North Carolina counties considered for location of our U.S. Navy's new Outlying Landing Field (OLF).

Although Senator Dole was on the campaign trail, this did not deter her from taking time attended a secret meeting of Gates County Board of Commissioners of Saturday 26, 2008. The meeting held at 2:15 P.M., and was neither advertised nor open to the public. In attendance of the secret meeting held Saturday was Senator Dole and four of the five Gates County Commissioners, and the County's Manager:

J.S. Pierce, Chairman
David R. Brown, Vice Chairman
Kenneth Jernigan, Commissioner
Wade Howell Askew, Commissioner

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
