John Rustin, former lobbyist for the N.C. Family Policy Council, is returning to the organization as its president. Rustin left the group about four years ago to lead the N.C. FreeEnterprise Foundation.
Rustin replaces Bill Brooks, who has been president for 20 years.
The Family Policy Council opposes legislation that expands gambling and supported the constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions. It recently published an ariticle that supported extending the wait time for couples seeking a divorce from one year to two years.
