I doubt David Price is responsible for Townsend plant’s closing

In the last Chatham Chatlist, Tom Glendenning insinuated that the state wouldn’t permit Omton, the chicken plant’s owner, to import cheap Ukrainian grain using North Carolina ports. He insinuates somehow we should blame David Price for that by saying we should contact him. This seems odd since David Price doesn’t have authority over NC’s ports, and furthermore doesn’t even represent the area where either doomed chicken plant is located, or even the area where the ports are located. Why would he try to pin this on David Price?
