Observer taps city’s e-mail to develop ‘audience’

Folks registered online with the City of Charlotte/Mecklenburg County got the e-mail below today, notifying them that The Charlotte Observer wants to know who they are. We’re not so sure the work to expand North Carolina’s open records laws was meant to benefit “Strategic Products and Audience Development” at the Observer.
