Dear fellow voters,

 

I know you were shocked as I was Sept. 11 when the N.C. House of Representatives held a surprise vote to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s budget veto. Democratic members and the media were told there would be no votes taken; in fact, Republican Speaker Tim Moore convened the session and brought forth the vote on the veto, which passed with a 55 – 9 majority (with only 64 of 120 members present).
