Governor extends special invitation

Governor Cooper and First Lady Kristin Cooper invite state employees to join them after work at the North Carolina Executive Mansion on Wednesday, May 10 from 5:00-6:30 p.m.

The Executive Mansion is located at 200 North Blount St., Raleigh, NC 27601. State employees can enter at the main gates on Blount Street and are asked to bring employee identification with them. Employees who wish to attend should do so on their personal time, including any travel time.

As Governor Cooper travels the state in the coming weeks and months, he also hopes to visit with state employees outside of the Raleigh area.
