Gov. Cooper Visits Hurricane Damaged Home In Kinston

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — Governor Roy Cooper says he is one of many officials working hard to help area residents and businesses rebuild after multiple hurricanes caused significant damage across eastern North Carolina. Governor Cooper traveled to Kinston on Tuesday to meet with community members and city leaders as a part of ReBuild North Carolina.

Hurricane Matthew left Antionette Croom’s family with water damage to the roof in 2016 – damage she says was still there when Hurricane Florence impacted the area in 2018. Currently, Croom says her family is staying in Goldsboro, far away from the rest of their loved ones.

Cooper, community members and Kinston officials had the opportunity to tour Croom’s home on Tuesday. Cooper says her home is one of more than 200 the program has reconstructed in eastern North Carolina.

    My son, his wife and their 3 small sons were flooded in October of 2016 by hurricane Matthew. They as of this date have not received monies that they are approved for.

    What has this governor ever done. Just drawing a check.

  3. Jones says:

    It only took him 2 & 1/2 years to make an appearance & act concerned???? Is he up for reelection this year?

    • pyrate says:

      I looked at my calendar and, by golly, he IS running for re-election this year! Shocker! They don’t come out to the streets and mingle with the “common folks” and “feel their pain” until a few months before November. (That’s Democrat AND Republican, by the way.)

  4. pyrate says:

    Yep, Cooper and his klan are your typical liberal feel-good politicians. Walked into a poor lady’s house with a leaking roof, cried and wailed along with her, and walked away with the roof still leaking.

      As opposed to what, Tossing the people some paper towels, telling them to have a good time and signing their bibles? SAD
