Senator Jeff Tarte (R-Mecklenburg) addressed the Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce at its regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Thursday, October 24 at Pine Lake Country Club. Tarte spent about 20 minutes touching on a variety of topics, including the 2011 Reevaluation Bill, North Carolina’s ability to attract new businesses, term limits, and the airport authority.

Willett, a US History and seminar teacher in Independence High School’s Academy of International Studies (AIS) program, has been leading the exchange for the past four years.
