I have often heard the myth that Republicans are for smaller government, reducing taxes and cutting government spending. Rep. Tim Moffitt, in his first term in office at the North Carolina House, put all these myths to rest. He has increased the size of our County Commissioners by 40 percent, and this was not in response to grassroots or popular call for more county commissioners in Buncombe. This means he increased the salaries and expenses that the taxpayers have to pay by 40 percent.
So much for smaller government and reducing our taxes! Instead, we have higher expenses for something we do not need. I think Rep. Moffitt himself should cover these added expenses. I think we should garnish his wages to cover these new expenses.
Next, this guy wants to privatize our water system. We will not let you do that, Rep. Moffitt. You have clearly shown that you do not know how to govern, and you did it in record time. Jane Whilden has announced that she is running for N.C. House, District 116. Clearly a better choice, by a huge margin, so I sure hope the good people of Buncombe County vote this clown Moffitt out of office.
