NC House Republicans Loading Up UNC Board of Governors with Democrats (AGAIN)…

Excerpt From: Daily Haymaker. Written By: Brant Clifton.

They voted to shrink the number of seats on the UNC Board of Governors. But the House Republican majority on Jones Street is still trying to make sure the Ds are well represented there:

Fourteen people have been nominated in the House for six seats on the UNC Board of Governors.

The legislature recently acted to downsize the board from 32 members to 28 in 2017, making this year’s race for board seats more competitive. The board will be reduced to 24 members in 2019.

Among the 14 nominees are four current board members: Roger Aiken, an investment broker from Alexander; Henry Hinton, a broadcast executive from Greenville; Doyle Parrish, a Raleigh businessman; and Dr. Joan Perry, a physician from Kinston.

Everybody remember Doyle Parrish?  He is a Raleigh Democrat who was very generous with his wallet for Thom Tillis while he was speaker and when he ran for US Senate. And he’s getting renominated.  BY REPUBLICANSMORE:

New nominees are: Kellie Hunt Blue of Pembroke, a county government finance director and chair of the UNC Pembroke trustees; […]

Trending: Illegal Alien, Underage Accomplice Charged with Mass Murder, Execution of Children in Alexander County

Kellie Blue recently switched from Democrat to unaffiliated.  Real recently.  (She voted in the 2016 Democrat primaries.)  In 2012 she donated to Walter Dalton AND Pat McCrory in the governor’s race.  That same year, she also donated to Janet Cowell for Treasurer.  In 2016, she donated to Senate Rules Committee chairman Bill Rabon (who DOES NOT represent her), the state treasurer campaign of Dan Blue III, and — of course — Roy Cooper for governor.
