Yesterday during the press conference at the NCGA in Raleigh, the Governor was asked to come to set while the short session is underway before decisions are made and see for himself and fully understand what is at stake. Also, Mayor Saffo along with Bill Vasser, Susi Hamilton, Ted David and Rep. Moore from Mecklenburg County spoke about how important the incentives are and they are asking the legislators to extend the film incentives for another year before making any decisions. Please continue to call Speaker Tillis and Gov. Pat McCrory‘s office. Tell them your story, let them know what would happen if the film incentives went away. Make it personal. Let them see just how many people if affects and how.
Contact these folks today :
Speaker Thom Tillis
Gov. Pat McCrory
