On each of the big issues Charlotte is tackling right now, it seems the city and the state have different opinions -- from stadium funding, including a possible tax raise, who runs the airport and streetcar.
As Eyewitness News sat down with Gov. Pat McCrory, it was his first official visit back to Charlotte since facing several controversial financial issues between the city of Charlotte and state lawmakers.
"I'm doing great, it is good to be back home," said McCrory.
Eyewitness News first spoke about the Panthers and team owner Jerry Richardson, who recently petitioned lawmakers for state money to help renovate the stadium.
When asked if he thought state money should be used for the Panthers, McCrory responded, "There is no state money at this point in time in our budget."
McCrory also touched on the recent battle involving the airport, and a bill state lawmakers are considering to transfer control of Charlotte's airport to a state authority and no longer run by the city.
McCrory said it is not state politicians pushing this, but business leaders here in Charlotte.
"That did not come from Raleigh that came from Charlotte. And what I am recommending is that Charlotte political leaders get in a room with Charlotte business leaders and work this thing out," said McCrory.
All of it, some say, has been leading to a buildup in tension between the state and the city of Charlotte.
When Eyewitness News asked if there is a bit of strife between the two, McCrory responded, "No, actually there isn't. I am reading about that, but we are having great conversations with local leaders."
When Eyewitness News asked McCrory what his relationship is like with Mayor Anthony Foxx right now, he responded, "We are fine, we just had a wonderful conversation."
And while the governor came to uptown on Monday, touting a company moving its headquarters to Charlotte, the governor said to expect more.
"There are many conversations going on right now for this region and we hope for future announcements to come," said McCrory.
