Raleigh NC peeps

A former coworker of mine is moving to Raleigh to work for the city in the next couple of weeks. His family is staying behind until the school year is over. I was wondering if any of you were open to being a point of contact for him, someone he can ask about places to eat, schools, etc. He's a nice guy, his wife is too, and his kids are both in elementary school. Just PM me if you're available. Thanks. [Author: [email protected] (Salmissra)]
