'We just want to know what’s happening': Students push for clarity on CARES Act relief aid

The University is beginning to release emergency funding from the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act for students affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, but some have criticized the administration for moving too slowly to release funds and not being transparent about the process.  Students were formally notified about the opportunity for emergency funding about a month after the University received funds from the CARES Act. The announcement was sent two days after Undergraduate Senator Lamar Richards sent a letter to the chancellor criticizing the University for not publicizing the funds and not moving quicker to release them.

Bloomberg garners high-profile N.C. endorsements going into crucial Super Tuesday

Bloomberg has secured 157 endorsements from current and former mayors throughout the country at this point in his unorthodox presidential bid, which he is funding on his own dime. Seven of those mayoral endorsements come from North Carolina, according to the Bloomberg campaign, including from Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin, Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles and two former Raleigh mayors.  The state’s House and Senate Democratic leaders, Rep. Darren Jackson and Senator Dan Blue, recently endorsed Bloomberg’s bid for commander-in-chief. North Carolina figureheads like Bev Perdue, the state’s first female governor, have also thrown their weight behind him.
