Aixa Wilson says no to special interests and yes to sustainable economic development

It's time to vote, and there are clear choices. The people of the 11th Congressional District can choose to vote for Aixa Wilson, a newcomer to the political arena who wants absolutely nothing to do with special interests. Or they can vote for self-serving Heath Schuler. Or the people can vote for one of the many Republicans running from the party of "no" who want to maintain the status quo in the 11th District and country that has been so profitable to so many of their corporate friends.

Aixa Wilson wants to focus on sustainable, thoughtful economic growth in the district while maintaining environmental health, as well as supporting personal protections and freedoms reserved for the people in the U.S. Constitution. He wants to empower small and corporate businesses that care about the community. However, he does not tolerate businesses that prefer profit over the well-being and safety of the people.

Aixa Wilson cares. He is a loving father. He is a veteran who served honorably in the Army Reserves, 2000 to 2008. He served a year in Kuwait. He is Christian. He has a master's degree in anthropology. He is an archaeologist working full-time. His campaign is being run on personal character and integrity, not money from special interests. He plans to improve life for the people of WNC by developing job opportunities, improving veterans' mental-health services, expanding local food production to help low-income residents, supplementing education resources and developing renewable energy resources.
