Governor McCrory spoke candidly regarding his feelings about Patrick Cannon's arrest for public corruption.
“I’m heartbroken about what’s happened and I’m angry at the same time because it’s someone that I’ve known for a long period of time and I love this city. And this city has had an incredible reputation for a long, long time about its high ethical standards. And this city does not deserve that type of behavior.”
McCrory was recently in Charlotte and sat next to Cannon at a luncheon for the United Negro College Fund. McCrory’s brother Phil had been Patrick Cannon’s big brother.
