Stanly County Commission meets new lawyer for ALCOA suit

By Brian Graves, Staff Writer

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 — In a strange coincidence, Stanly County Commission met with its new legal counsel for the ALCOA cases Tuesday night just as a neighboring county was giving the company a “thumbs up” of sorts.

The meeting had only one regular item agenda and there were only four people in attendance outside of the commission and staff.

Those four were two members of the media, a deputy sheriff and S.C. Kitchen of the Turrentine Law Firm.

As seems to be a normal part of the commission’s meetings as of late, the members met in closed session after the regular business was finished.

However, this closed session lasted for only minutes and after it was over, Chairman Gene McIntyre introduced Kitchen to the media.
