NC Council of State members shouldn’t serve on corporate boards

Dan Blue III must have gotten the message from the response to State Treasurer Janet Cowell’s decision to accept two lucrative corporate board positions prior to leaving office. Blue initially said he’d view board offers on a case-by-case basis, but now the Democrat seeking to succeed Cowell says he won’t take the posts. His Republican opponent, Dale Folwell, said from the beginning of the race that he wouldn’t sit on boards of directors.
