Puck­ett: A voice of fis­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity

The Charlotte Observer - - Front Page -

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.
