Statement from Neal Robbins, Publisher of the North State Journal:
“North State Journal’s opinion editor Drew Elliot has been selected for a position as the head of communications for the N.C. Department of Public Instruction. We congratulate Drew on his new position and look forward to working with him as he relays developments in this important division of state government.
Drew’s contribution to the launch of the North State Journal is immeasurable and his vision of responsible journalism and thoughtful analysis will be a part of our pages for years to come. His editorials have consistently lived up to North State Journal’s desire to elevate the conversation throughout North Carolina.
I look forward to working with Ray Nothstine, who will serve as acting Opinion Editor, while we use this opportunity to bring new voices to our opinion page to better serve the entire state.”
