WHAT FUTURE WILL YOU CHOOSE?

Why would someone locate a business or buy a home in Randolph County?  It’s an important question in our upcoming election of County Commissioners.  You don’t hear the incumbent commissioners talking about it, but I will because it’s a major reason why I’m running for office.  People are leaving our community because we are not taking advantage of our opportunities.  Opportunity, it is said, doesn’t knock twice.  We must act on it while it’s here.

We should make Randolph County the best place to live in the Piedmont Triad by focusing on three priorities:

  1. Create the best K-12 and Community College education in the region.
  2. Be the best place for family-oriented lifestyle including recreation, arts and activities.
  3. Be a safe and healthy place to live.

Read more about how and why below.

Please help! Campaign materials are here

We now have a good supply of yard signs, bumper stickers and handout cards.  All are available at Democratic HQ,  114 Sunset Avenue, Asheboro, NC 27203 between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM on weekdays or by other arrangement.  Call Bob Morrison at (336 953-2643 for delivery or Susie Scott, County Chairperson (336) 953-3884 for pickups at Democratic HQ outside normal hours.  You may also request materials by clicking the “Contact Us” button on the website.

Our bumper stickers are plastic and they are easily removable with no residue on windows or paint.  Please get one.  Few candidates use them and for that reason we’re hoping that ours will be more effective.

(Materials for other Democratic Candidates are also available at HQ.)

A silver lining inside the opiod crisis cloud?

In most cases it isn’t legal to use Medicaid funding for treatment of prisoners but it is legal to cover those on probation.  If we would put non-violent addicts on probation and restrict them to a residential treatment facility we could provide treatment with Medicaid funding.  The local cost would be far less than building and operating the jail expansion that is currently needed.  We would create new jobs for the staff of the treatment facility.  (That is economic development and job creation.)  A significant number of addicts would recover and return to productive roles in the community rather than recycling through our criminal justice system at the taxpayers’ expense.
