New Year message from Purdue

Happy New Year, North Carolina! I hope 2010 is a wonderful time for you and your family!

The year gone by was certainly tough for many.

The economy squeezed budgets from the kitchen table to the halls of state government. We all faced challenges – and there will be more to come – but as North Carolinians are so apt to do, we turned challenges into opportunities.

With the dawn of a New Year, we have time to pause, reflect and dream of what’s to come. Our New Year’s resolutions can be bold. We have a chance to turn things around.

Dream big, because anything is possible in the New Year!
