Homework Assignment

Gather input on the concerns of people in your community that are relevant to our discussion topic and bring them to the first session. Please talk with 5 people in your community: they can be friends, neighbors, co-workers or others; they do not need to be experts and ideally they will include some people that you think might disagree with you. Ask them the following questions and write down their concerns (capture the language people use to the extent possible):

  1. When you think about revenue and how we pay for state and local government in North Carolina, what concerns you? What bothers you the most, personally?
  2. What concerns do you hear friends and family members—or people you don’t know well—talk about when it comes to talking how we pay for state and local government in NC?

Details for November and December meetings will be made available soon.
