The representatives in Raleigh have forgotten to whom they are supposed to serve.Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.
There was an ethos in the army called the Soldier’s Creed, which all soldiers had to learn and live by. I continue to live by that creed today. What it means for the voters of NC-117 is this: I will serve my district and live by Western North Carolina Values. I will always place the needs of District 117 first, not the needs of Wall Street. I will never accept defeat on behalf of my constituents. I will never quit fighting for your needs. I am YOUR guardian of freedom and the Mountain way of life. I will be the representative who always has District 117’s back!
