Puckett: A voice of fiscal responsibility
One of the surprises of this year’s election was that incumbent Mecklenburg Commissioner Jim Puckett lost the District 1 seat.
We should pause to recognize him for his decades of effective service representing northern Mecklenburg County and, before that, the CMS board.
His has been a consistent voice of responsibility that helped check the worst impulses of the commission, such as the Major League Soccer scam last year. The selfless leadership of people like him makes local government work.
Thank you, Jim Puckett.
