wow, so some letter! So he is accusing of Tillis trying to achieve a monopoly for TWC due to a "business relationship" he has with that company!! Very serious accusation.

Wow, that's very interesting. Aside from the issues he raises, it's too bad that such a powerful legislator has such poor grammar and writing skills. It only reinforces my opinion that many of these guys in Raleigh just aren't very smart.

Whether or not Brawley has raised any valid points (and I happen to agree with him regarding the Legislature running roughshod over the city of Asheville), he lost most or all of his credibility (IMO) when he introduced a bill to roll back ethics standards for legislators.

Big government conservatives are running Raleigh. I'm not really a big fan of McRory, but he at least seems reasonable compared to the Republicans in the legislature.

It's funny that Tillis thinks he stands a chance winning the senate primary next year.

This has me so perplex in what Tillis is doing to the GA. Is he bullying long term members?
Yesterday I thought it was Brawley being a wimp and leaving the position but apparently by that email Tillis
told him to step down and that letter was a resignation letter of that position.

I will give Brawley credit of addressing Tillis with respect in that email but IMO if he has grievances then he needs to stand firm on what he believes and not be pushed over regardless of what power trip Tillis is on.
