Perdue picks Joines for economic post

The mayor of Winston-Salem, Allen Joines, says he plans to advocate for attracting businesses that focus on technology, “green” jobs and military-supported companies to North Carolina in his new role as the chairman of a state economic-advisory board.

Gov. Bev Perdue announced yesterday that she has appointed Joines, who has been Winston-Salem’s mayor for eight years, as the chairman of the 37-member N.C. Economic Development Board. The board helps the N.C. Department of Commerce and the governor set policies that govern tax incentives for new businesses, trade policy, travel, tourism and other economic-development efforts.

His term will start July 1. He replaces Jordy Whichard of Greenville.


A ‘new’ Tabor wants to herd Forsyth GOP into one tent

May 4, 2009

Published: May 3, 2009

Five years ago, when Nathan Tabor was running in the Republican primary for the 5th District congressional seat, Forsyth County District Attorney Tom Keith said he wouldn’t vote for him for dogcatcher. Now, with Keith’s blessing, Tabor has taken on a job that some might liken to herding cats — serving as the chairman of the Forsyth County Republican Party.

“Let’s start fighting the Democrats instead of fighting each other,” said Tabor, a 35-year-old veteran of fiery campaigns. “I have really reached out over the years to build bridges back with people.” He describes himself as “gentler, softer, more agreeable. I’m not a candidate here; I’m not having to say I’m better equipped or have more experience.”

Forsyth County went Democratic in most races in last November’s elections. Like their counterparts nationwide, Republicans here are searching for new ways to sell their party to voters. Tabor has the Facebook savvy and youth they’ll need to do that — if moderates aren’t scared off by his past stances.

Forsyth County Republicans picked Kernersville resident Nathan Tabor on Saturday to lead the county Republican party for a two-year term. He replaces Bill Miller who announced earlier in the year that he will not run again after serving eight years.

Tabor was chosen in a secret ballot during the party’s annual convention, on the west campus of Forsyth Technical Community College.

Jerry Jordan, the GOP’s representative on the county board of elections, was also in the running for the chairmanship.

Congratulations to Mr. Nathan Tabor!

Winston-Salem officials, in an effort to save money on salaries and benefits, have offered certain city employees a $20,000 cash incentive to retire by Aug. 31.

The one-time payment is available only to employees who are eligible for full retirement benefits. At least 100 of the city’s employees are eligible, said Martha Wheelock, the assistant city manager.
