Abstract:
North Carolina Democratic Governor Mike Easley is popular because he rarely addresses tough issues and is not visible to the public. Easley is not the leader North Carolina needs and has done little to address corruption, the public financing of elections, transportation, the tax system, environmental issues, the mental health crisis, or the prison crisis. The only real work Easley has done is with education, but his plan lacks ambition and fails to serve those who need help the most.
