Cowell gets national recognition

State Treasurer Janet Cowell is one of 10 officials who have been selected to join the NewDEAL, a recently launched national network that is designed to highlight innovative ideas from state and local elected leaders who are “pro growth progressives.''

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and U.S. Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska, honorary chairs of NewDEAL, recognized Cowell for her efforts to to create a $230 million Innovation Fund to support and invest in businesses with significant operations in North Carolina while earning a solid return for the pension fund.

“In communities throughout the country, rising state and local leaders such as Janet Cowell are proving that you can be both pro-growth and progressive,” Begich said in a statement.

She joins Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and state Rep Grier Martin of Raleigh on the list.
