Pat McCrory on Jobs


Recruit and retain N.C. jobs, in RTP and in small towns

Our biggest challenge, as I travel the state right now, is not just developing jobs in a growing urban area--sometimes it's much easier to sell the Triangle area or the Charlotte area or the Triad area. But right now I think our biggest challenge is to develop a strategy for the small towns in North Carolina that have been hit so hard by this recession. And that's exactly what we plan to do. We've got to work with the small towns of North Carolina. There are too many people hurting in those towns.

And let me tell you this right now. I did it as mayor, and I'll do it again as governor. No one will out work this governor, or this team or any of you in our effort to grow, recruit and retain North Carolina jobs. We will be on the road and we're going to sell our great resources that we have. This is my job, this is your job. We've got a great product.
