Here we go again.

Another run for the State Senate, only this time the people caught onto the fact that the incumbent, Joel Ford, was a disaster and after six years they removed him from office in the primary. 

Now we have a newcomer, Mujtaba Mohammed, a young lawyer who has no business experience whatsoever versus my 30 years in business. While his heart is in the right place, he seems to miss the point of HOW to create higher income for all citizens, HOW to raise people out of poverty, and HOW to create an equitable justice system.

Before I tell you WHY my opponent is another disaster, please READ the chart by licking READ MORE below. In 2010, the Democrats had control of North Carolina for 138 years. And we had among the lowest standards. In the few years Republicans have the state house North Carolina has shot up in every positive direction possible. 

I would like to address the main concerns that Mr. Mohammed has touted as important for our district. Better yet, I will tell you HOW I intend to fix these things:

Vote for the PROjobs candidate. Richard Rivette has a history of creating JOBs with new and existing companies. By concentrating on the redevelopment of our district (the west and north light industrial areas of Mecklenburg county), the state tax code and the education system, including both public schools and higher ed, we can build what we need to succeed and lift many of our families out of this recession.

As the PROcharlotte candidate Richard Rivette will propose citizen committees to help us plan extensive new development of the Charlotte metro region, but especially focus on his district, which is still greatly affected by the last recession, unemployment, hour reductions and the departure of decent wage jobs. "Our focus must be on attracting new ventures and employing our local Charlotte neighbors." We must aggressively seek opportunities like the Toyota manufacturing facilities we lost to other states because our current Senator is too busy to be bothered promoting this region.

One can decide to regress or move ahead. I choose to progress, but without a valid direction, support and guidance from experienced leadership like mine, we risk more bureaucracy and less freedom in our daily lives.
