WFAE Talks: Political Tiffs And The Golden Nut


Commissioner Pat Cotham wants to head the Mecklenburg County Commission again one year after her colleagues ousted her from the role. She believes the election results show people want her in charge, although it appears unlikely to happen. Greg, Lisa, and Ben also discuss why CMS board Chairwoman Mary McCray went out of her way to make clear that only one member of the board wanted former Superintendent Heath Morrison to keep his job. Plus, the intense competition for what's called the Golden Nut Award.
