You may have heard about the governor’s plans to remodel the bathrooms in the private living quarters in the governor’s mansion. The price tag was a reported $230k!

Well, once the word got out and the public started protesting, the governor’s spokesperson issued a statement saying that the scope of the work would now be scaled back, according to WNCN.

“The governor has firmly communicated to the Department of Administration that not one penny of taxpayer dollars will be used to remodel or upgrade any of the six bathrooms in the living quarters,” Genardo said. “Only a very limited amount of funds will be used to repair potential code violations, treat dangerous mold and fix broken faucets.”

The pricey remodeling work was approved by State Budget Director Art Pope little more than a month after McCrory signed a budget that provided big tax cuts for the wealthy while excluding raises for teachers, dropping per-pupil school spending to among the lowest rates in the nation, and slashing a program that provides dental work to low-income children.

The proposed $230,000 price tag was more than the median value of an entire single family home in Raleigh.

So, what do you think?
