Dan Forest Reacts to Governor Cooper’s Deleterious ‘One Size Fits All’ Reopening Strategy

RALEIGH – Governor Roy Cooper extended the statewide Stay-at-Home order Thursday, stretching the shutdown order until May 8, at the earliest. That last caveat is important because, although Cooper did outline conditions for reopening, that very plan also exposed the May 8 date as a mere starting point for negotiations using goal posts can move.

Cooper did not afford any local or regional bodies discretion in how their communities my best move forward with weighing the costs and benefits of continued shutdowns, and Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest thinks such a one-size-fits-all approach is a detriment to North Carolinians.
