Greene vs Starnes for NC House 87 (Caldwell County)

From Jordan Greene’s website:

“Yes, we need conservative leadership in Raleigh to work to restore North Carolina’s respect for freedom and the individual. However, we need more than conservatives, we need conservatives who will stand by the constitution and the principles of individual liberty. We need leadership that will work to restore free-market principles to help produce a business friendly environment for job growth in our state, including less spending, no new taxes, no corporate welfare and less business regulations. We need leadership in Raleigh that will stand up for our state’s rights under the tenth amendment to the United States Constitution and work to protect our gun rights from federal encroachment, nullify Obamacare and defend the unborn child’s right to life.”

From Edgar Starnes’ website:

“I am committed to giving the hard working, taxpaying citizens of this district the conservative leadership they have come to expect and deserve. I have long been interested in the economic and spiritual well being of our citizens and my voting record reflects this concern. … This coming session of the General Assembly will be critical to the people of Caldwell County. My number one priority will be jobs. We must aggressively pursue jobs so people can go back to work. It is imperative that North Carolina adopt an economic growth policy that benefits each of us.”

Pittenger, who plans to formally kick off his campaign this morning, became the first candidate to air a TV ad in the race, called “Effective & Conservative.”

Pendergraph and Pittenger are among 11 Republicans running for the seat.

Question #1 for NCGA Candidates

A NC resident asked the question:

“”Save the Cape has asked legislators to take a pledge to protect taxpayers from any more funding for the $6.1 billion megaport, planned for Southport. There is no economic case to be made for this massive, colossal, mind boggling boondoggle and I for one would sure like to know where each and every candidate stands on this. So far, only 8 legislators in the General Assembly have taken the pledge to show fiscal responsibility to the taxpayers of NC.”
