Charlotte Talks Local News Roundup: Local Election Re-Cap; Guns at CMS High Schools; Bojangles' Sale


Friday, November 9th, 2018

The midterms are in the rearview mirror.  A gun found at two CMS high schools and the fatal shooting at Butler High continues the conversation about guns and CMS.  The school board gets a report on possible boundary changes in response to the town charter school bill. Bojangles' gets new ownership and Wells Fargo apologizes - again. Mike Collins and the Roundup Reporters cover these topics and more.

On this edition of the local news roundup…

With the midterm election in the rear view mirror, we take a look at some of North Carolina’s most impactful outcomes from Tuesday, including the passage of four constitutional amendments, the tight finish in the 9th District and all three Republican incumbents being voted out the Mecklenburg County Commission.

Meanwhile, a gun found at Hopewell High School this week, and one last week at Garinger High, in addition to the fatal shooting at Butler High School continues to spur conversation about safety in schools.

School boundaries are also an issue as the CMS Board gets a report on possible changes in response to the clash with suburban towns over charter schools this year.

Charlotte based fast food chain Bojangles' will be acquired by two New York investment firms, just months after its CEO stepped down. How will this affect your chicken and biscuits? We discuss the deal.

And Wells Fargo is apologizing again- a new disclosure said that even more people than originally thought were impacted by an internal error regarding mortgages.

Host Mike Collins will bring you those stories and much more with our roundtable of reporters on the Charlotte Talks Local News Roundup.
