RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Beverly Perdue said she would stop state Board of Transportation members from voting on most individual projects if elected governor, which happened Nov. 4.
The Democratic announced several executive orders and directives she would issue on her first day in office.
The pledges were designed to help her grab the title of the reform candidate in her race with Republican Pat McCrory. Perdue has taken heat after two transportation board members who raised money for her campaign have resigned under ethical clouds.
Perdue has said she wants road-building decisions made by division experts within DOT.
She also said she would hold at least four live town-hall meetings that could be televised and conduct monthly performance reviews with at least one agency leader.
