Patsy Keever offers a silver lining in economically cloudy times

It seems we take one step forward, two steps back with the economy. Am I ready to stitch my savings into my mattress? Perhaps not yet. I see a small sliver of hope, strangely enough from a candidate in the next election.

My friend, Patsy Keever, is running to represent us in the N.C. House, District 115, and I find that very hopeful. She is a standup sort. She's a gett’er-done, do-it-right person. She's full of pride for this region and wants to focus on several issues very much — the economy [is] top among them, plus the environment and education.

I've known her since she became politically active and find her brave to keep wanting to fight. I've watched her work on issues like hunger and homelessness in this area, and she’s made a difference. She deserves a chance, and I thank her for trying.

She's a silver lining to a campaign season that may seem superfluous.

    Taxey Keever never saw a TAX INCREASE she didnt love, and we’ve had enough of that in Rawleigh…no thanks, Vote Mark Crawford for some sensible change.

    Dittos on that One Only Knows. The last thing we need is higher taxes and the money going to fund more Raleigh pork barrel projects. Like a Teapot Museum. Like “working” vacation trips to Hawaii obstensively for the Asheville-Hendersonville Airport. “Progressive” democrats, Obama and his “let them be unemployed and pay higher taxes while me and Michelle vacation like royalty every other weekend” hypocrisy has ruined your label for a long time to come.
