TAKE NOTICE S&P, Moody’s, Fitch. #NCGA presiding officers clandestinely fired its award-winning, nonpartisan, 14 FTE statutory program evaluation staff on 2/2021 without filing a bill to repeal law creating the staff and its joint oversight committee. #NCPOL#DefendWatch
Make no mistake, this is a pivotal week for UNC. The Board of Trustees could respect the integrity & judgment of the faculty & administration, or it could let politics rule. Choosing the latter would be damning to an already damaged reputation.
