Thank you INDY WEEK for the endorsement.
When you look at Chuck Stuber’s résumé, it’s hard to argue that he doesn’t have the chops for this position. A former FBI agent who was involved in the investigations of former governor Mike Easley, former House speaker Jim Black, and former U.S. senator John Edwards, Stuber has proven that he knows how to dig in on fraud and corruption. While incumbent Democrat Beth Wood has done fine work as the first woman to hold the post, Stuber’s unrivaled experience tilts the scale in his favor. And should Roy Cooper indeed occupy the Executive Mansion in a few months (fingers crossed), having someone from the opposing party to keep him and his fellow Democrats on the Council of State in check won’t be a bad thing.
