I am confused.
I am told that I live in the 115th District, and I am represented by Nathan Ramsey, but looking at his record since being sent to Raleigh, I think that I am actually represented by Tim Moffitt.
During the short session, both representatives were primary sponsors or cosponsors on almost 30 legislative bills.
One bill that allows warrantless drone surveillance was introduced by Tim Moffitt and Nathan Ramsey.
Those living in the 115th District need to think whether they want Tim Moffitt and Nathan Ramsey looking into their living rooms — or other rooms for that matter.
Everyone remembers the movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, where Mr. Smith (Jimmy Stewart) continued to represent his family, friends and community. Mr. Ramsey went to Raleigh and forgot about his family, friends and community. The only thing he remembers is what Tim Moffitt tells him to do.
I have gotten to know John Ager over the past year. He can honestly say he is a farmer (Hickory Nut Gap Farms) and not a lawyer/farmer. John always talks about the community and the environment.
Ramsey and Moffitt seem to think we need fracking. My wife is from Youngstown, Ohio, which is now plagued by earthquakes since fracking began.
Moffitt and Ramsey also sponsored the new coal commission to deal with the coal-ash ponds. That bill falls far short of approving any power to prevent an environmental disaster in our community.
If you want to find out more about your current representative, you can find his newsletter on the Asheville tea party website. I urge my neighbors not to make the same mistake twice.
Remember a vote for Ramsey is a vote for Moffitt. We need to send someone to Raleigh like John Ager, who cares about us and not an organization (ALEC) located in Washington, D.C.
