Council of State to Dan Forest: Call me, beep me

The Lieutenant Governor of NC doesn’t have a lot to do under the state’s Constitution. The few formal constitutional duties assigned include serving as President of the Senate and on the Council of State. 

Despite this, Lt. Gov. Dan Forest has been busy this year traveling the state from the mountains to the coast. He also hasn’t missed opportunities to leave the state, even if they interfere with his few Constitutional duties. 

Today, Dan Forest was again absent from the meeting of the Council of State. Forest had to be called in for the October meeting, but this morning, his voice was conspicuously absent from the phone.

Council of State Meeting, Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Back in May, the Council of State also had trouble getting Forest on the phone.

Forest did answer later and heard about the last 10 minutes of the May 2, 2017, meeting.
