To all of you Moore County campaign operatives who read this blog religiously, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY.
I have had several emails and calls from people today expressing sentiments along the line of: “That’s outrageous! How can she run for mayor of Pinehurst when she’s moving to Greensboro???”
“She” is Nancy Roy Fiorillo, candidate for mayor of Pinehurst.
Operatives for other mayoral and council campaigns sounded off to me. (One Fiorillo supporter was so upset she wanted to get her campaign contribution refunded.)
As far as I know, Nancy and Ray Fiorillo are very happy with Pinehurst and plan to stay a while.
What got all of this started? It was this earlier post on our fine little blog. I excerpted a fun light-hearted blog post from The Greensboro News & Record musing about “Nancy Roy” and “Nancy Fiorillo.” WAY TOO MANY readers of our blog failed to notice the year 2008 attached to the post. The Greensboro item was written when Fiorillo took a temporary, interim position in Greensboro that year.
