Chief lobbyist for McCrory confirmed for new position

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory’s chief lobbyist at the General Assembly is officially moving on to another job within state government.

The Senate completed Wednesday confirming the appointment of Fred Steen to the Board of Review, which serves as a final arbiter on unemployment benefit claim appeals. The House gave similar unanimous approval last week.

Steen’s four-year term is set to begin July 1. He’ll take over the seat on the three-member board held by Keith Holliday.

Steen, a former mayor of Landis in Rowan County, served in the House before becoming McCrory’s legislative liaison as the 2013 session began.
