Meet the District Attorney - Rex Gore Speaks at NBCC Breakfast Meeting

Tuesday morning, North Carolina District 13 District Attorney Rex Gore spoke at a breakfast meeting of the North Brunswick Chamber of Commerce. The meeting was held at Antonio's Pizza and Pasta in Leland, which Mr. Gore described as a "Southern Italian" restaurant, because they had grits and sweet tea in the breakfast buffet.

District Attorney Gore brought along displays of local programs.

And here's District Attorney Gore himself. He was at once an entertaining and convincing speaker.

NBCC's Mary Anne Fagerquist was on hand to take photos for the chamber. I don't think I've ever seen her without her smile.

Mr. Gore, Bugsy Cigar's Frank Bullara, and Well Fargo Mortgage's Alan Henderson.

Clearly the group enjoyed the presentation.

East Carolina Bank's Susan Cruse and NBCC President George Murray of Murray Art & Frame.

The three Franks wanted this photo included (NBCC board member Franklin Rouse of State Farm Insurance, NBCC board member Frank Williams of Pioneer Strategies and Cape Fear Business News, and Frank Bullara of Bugsy's Cigars).

Justin Williams of NBM and SBM magazines and Todd Godbey of Kidsville Magazine (both NBCC board members).

Mr. Gore opened his talk with some graphics of humorous and interesting use of the eight characters allowed on NC license plates - with examples of real plates. This is the one on his wife's car.

Usually our monthly speaker meetings are at lunchtime. This month we held it in the morning. We had a good turnout and a terrific speaker. Thanks, Ms. Ansley and Mr. Gore for your interesting presentations.
