Pres. Obama has made a great move by selecting Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx as the new Transportation Secretary. You may recall that before the 2012 Democratic Convention, Mayor Foxx had the integrity to confess that there was no great barbecue in Charlotte after the First Lady had stated that Charlotte was a city with great barbecue. We need more people who put truth and barbecue ahead of partisanship and political expediency. He also is a Davidson grad.
If you see Anthony Foxx, give him a pat on the back.
