Education with Lt. Governor
This week on WingSpan we went off location to film in the Lieutenant Governor's office in Raleigh. The Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest spoke with us on North Carolina focused topics such as education.
Dan Forest is the 34th Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina. He was elected in the year 2012. Forest is a registered Republican and is the first Republican to serve in this position in over twenty years. This is his very first political office. He self-describes himself as a principled, conservative Republican and focused his 2012 campaign on North Carolina’s unemployment rate. He believes strong families and faith are fundamental foundations of America. The Lt. Governor presides over debate in that chamber and oversees the movement of legislation through the chamber. He received a B.A., in architecture, from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (1993) and his M.A., from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, College of Architecture.
