Legislators elect next class to serve on UNC board

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The General Assembly has elected its next class of 16 people to serve on the University of North Carolina Board of Governors.

The House and Senate held separate elections Wednesday to pick eight people apiece to serve on the 32-member board, which sets policy for UNC’s 17 campuses. They’ll serve four-year terms.

New board members include former state Rep. Laura Wiley of Greensboro, Hendrick Motorsports executive Scott Lampe of Davidson, Raleigh attorney Steven Long and Greenville radio personality Henry Hinton.

House Democrats and Republicans argued about the election, won mostly by Republican nominees. Rep. Mickey Michaux of Durham says it’s a travesty Republicans didn’t support some Democrats to promote board diversity.

House Majority Leader Edgar Starnes of Granite Falls says his side makes no apologies for electing Republicans.
