Governor-elect Bev Perdue has done a lot of listening lately. Maybe too much.
The highly publicized public forums that her transition team held – and the 14 reports that were generated – may not help her a bit when it comes time to stop listening and start governing.
They may make her job harder.
The team heard a litany of complaints and problems, along with pleas for more tax money. If there is one thing Governor Perdue will not have, it is money. And did a single problem or issue come up that she had not heard already during the campaign?
Yes, I know: people supposedly love it when government listens to them. But Perdue has already said her decisions will make a lot of people mad. Her transition process may have raised more hopes and expectations that she can’t meet.
