FOR THE DAILY SOUTHERNER
Tarboro Town Council members Debra Jordan, Candis Owens and Carol Ruffin, along with Town Manager Alan Thornton, attended the North Carolina League of Municipalities Legislative Goals Advocacy Conference in Raleigh last Thursday. Jordan took advantage of the opportunity to both speak with and have her photo taken with Gov. Pat McCrory, who was on-hand to speak to gathering. Thornton said the group was on-hand for a couple of reasons — to actively participates in all areas of governance and to be advocates for issues that affect Tarboro's citizens.
