New NC budget director has banking background and heritage of politics and journalism

A former community bank director and recent appointee to the N.C. Banking Commission will take the helm as state budget director next month. Gov. Pat McCrory on Wednesday announced Lee Roberts – son of journalist and political commentator Cokie Roberts and grandson of the late Democratic Rep. Lindy Boggs of Louisiana – would succeed Art Pope, the chain retail business owner whose government service McCrory praised at an executive mansion press conference.
