The boards of commissioners from several local towns met with the Mecklenburg delegation of the North Carolina Legislators Thursday, January 3, in a called meeting to discuss legislative matters.

Town boards from Mint Hill, Cornelius, Matthews, Davidson, Pineville, and Huntersville met with members of the state legislature, including representative Bill Brawley, and senator Jeff Tarte, in a dinner meeting at Savour in Matthews.

“Try to sit with people you really don’t know too well, and encourage some conversation,” said Jim Taylor, mayor of Matthews. “I’m really pleased that everybody was able to come down here this evening, we have a good crowd—great crowd as a matter of fact.”
