Who is watching the coast? Coastal Resources Commission largely vacant

The Coastal Resources Commission has been pretty much of a shell of itself recently, after most of the commission had their terms ended as a result of a legislature-ordered reorganization.

But that may be about to change. Republican Gov. Pat McCrory is expected to announce new appointments in the coming days according to Ryan Tronovitch, a spokesman for the governor.

The legislature this summer voted to reduce the commission from 15 to 13 members, and replaced all but four of its members as of July 30th.

Oops -- One of Perdue's last appointments breaks the rules

Oops! One of Gov. Bev Perdue's final appointments last week was naming a well-connected New Bern man to the state Coastal Resources Commission.

Unfortunately, two other commissioners already live in Craven County, and the commission's rules prohibit more than two members coming from the same county.

Her choice of William Naumann, a former yachting company executive, has sent the commission staff scrambling.
