Voters in North Carolina House District 116 considering whether to vote for Rep. Tim Moffitt or Brian Turner should consider the following facts:
During his tenure in office, Moffitt was the sole sponsor of a law that restored the vote on annexation to the people of North Carolina after 53 years of being deprived of the constitutional right to vote on this issue and being subject to “forced annexation.”
Rep. Moffitt also co-sponsored a law that voided Asheville’s zoning authority in six extraterritorial jurisdiction areas, returning them to Buncombe County.
The law sponsored by Rep. Moffitt and other legislators transferring Asheville’s water system to the Buncombe County Sewerage District would prevent future voluntary annexation by Asheville in areas supplied by city water should the Sullivan Acts be voided.
Fracking will probably not take place in WNC due to a recent government agency’s decision based on the inhospitable terrain of the mountains.
During his time in office, Rep. Moffitt has attempted to pass bills that correct past wrongs and that benefit constituents. He serves on 21 or more legislative committees. Early voting starts on Oct. 23 and the general election is on Nov. 4. Please vote YES for Representative Moffitt!
