To Debate, or not to Debate

The Cary Chamber of Commerce’s Planning Conference took place on July 22 and 23 in Southern Pines. Discussion topics included downtown Cary, transportation, and a presentation of the Chamber’s 2010-2011 Business Plan. Also on the agenda was a forum for the 2010 NC House of Representatives Candidates.

Nearly all the candidates for House Districts 35, 36, 37 and 41 were in attendance. My opponent however did not attend. This was very disappointing as I was really looking forward to learning more about how her votes to increase taxes and government spending were going to improve North Carolina’s economy. I wanted to hear how expanded bureaucracies, gimmick legislation and over-regulation were going to help small business growth and create jobs. And I really wanted to hear about her plans to address next year’s projected $3 Billion plus budget deficit.

So did a lot of other people.

I had a great time at the conference and feedback about our campaign to unseat one of the most liberal, anti-business members of the North Carolina House was very positive. Thanks to the Chamber for hosting this forum and for all they do to support the Cary business community and that of our region.
