The slate of UNC Board of Governors candidates on the House side includes two players from the political world.
Among the 11 names nominated are Bill Daughtridge, a Republican former legislator and candidate for state treasurer, and David Young, chairman of the N.C. Democratic Party and who ran in the Democratic primary for state treasurer. Young is currently a member of the UNC board, which makes policy for the state's university system.
Though the board is elected through a political process, its members try to stay away from politics during board discussions.
The House is scheduled to elect eight members on April 1. The Senate is scheduled to vote on its slate today.
Besides Daughtridge and Young, other nominees on the House side are: current UNC board members Dudley Flood, Charles Mercer, Fred Mills and Irvin Roseman; and Walter Davenport, James Deal, Joel Harbinson, George Rountree and former N.C. Supreme Court Justice Willis Whichard.
