Gov. Pat McCrory made two appointments to the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission on Friday.
He named Greensboro real estate agent Kevin Green and state Department of Agriculture police Chief Joel Keith of Wake Forest.
Green, who contributed $2,250 to McCrory’s campaign, has lived in Greensboro since the 1970s. He is a member of the executive committee of the N.C. Association of Realtors. He is a registered Republican.
Keith, who contributed $1,000 to McCrory’s campaign, has served as president of the N.C. Association of ABC Boards and as a member of the state ABC Officers Association. He is an unaffiliated voter.
BTW: Last month, McCrory appointed former Lt. Gov. Jim Gardner to be chairman of the commission. Gardner is a longtime restaurant executive. He served on McCrory's transition team after the November election.
