Richard Rivette for NC House 107

It is time that all good people of this House district stand for something. We have endured nearly four months of insanity perpetrated by an out-of-control Governor who has abused the laws of this state. Read NC G.S.S. 166 19.30 and you will note that all the restrictions he imposed on business owners were not allowed without concurrence of the Council of State, which he did not have. He never had agreement to do what he has done. I personally know many businesses that will never reopen their doors. He has misused authority to bankrupt hundreds if not thousands of companies and left their employees with nothing.

And for what? Because of misinformation and poor data, and data he will not release which will prove that the mortality rate from COVID-19 was never going to be as drastic as predicted. It is unfortunate and tragic we lose even one person to disease, but the lockdowns and closures have been Draconian beyond belief. Many people have died of drug overdoses, suicide, mental health issues, and other afflictions brought on by isolation, deprivation, lack of income, destruction of economies and more. Many of the deaths listed as Covid were co-morbidities where they had serious underlying conditions. We have been lied to for long enough.


My opponent, Rep. Alexander

You've heard of Insane Clown Posse? Meet my opponent whose voting record can only be described as insane. See if you agree with me. Then vote for me.

For those who do not know Civitas, they rank legislators according to whether they vote for "FREEDOM" on legislation, or if they vote "AGAINST FREEDOM". You can only guess where my opponent, Rep. Alexander ranked. Even I was shocked. His votes are nearly historic. I am almost at a loss for words. For example, he voted to allow infanticide.

Senate Bill 359, Born-Alive Survivors Protection Act, legally reaffirms that a baby that survives an attempted abortion has the rights of a human being and is entitled to any life-saving medical care available. Alexander voted to allow babies that survive abortion to be left to die. After they were born. I know abortion supporters who think that is crazy. It is too much, a bridge too far. This goes against every human principle.

He voted against citizens deciding against EMINENT DOMAIN where the government can seize your property! Why can't YOU the voter decide? It is YOUR property!

He voted against making the State Health Plan for pensioners viable. He wanted to halt study while we face a $32 BILLION deficit in future because past administrations never put aside any funds for state workers. If we don't act soon, there will be no funds and hundreds of thousands of retirees who face having NO healthcare at all. He says he loves seniors. Nope. I don't think so. 

ISSUES we ALL FACE:

1. FIX THE ROADS! To accommodate any more growth, the northeast Charlotte region needs Eastfield Road, Mallard Creek Road, and others widened so we don't have five mile backups every day. NOTE to DOT - I will be visiting you my first week in office to find out WHY the Mallard Creek Road/Sugar Creek Road, and Graham Street interchange has NEVER been finished after YEARS! (UPDATE July 2020) Someone must have heard an earful because the intersection is finally being finished off. How many years did we wait?

2. MAKE HEALTH INSURANCE AFFORDABLE! We CAN get dozens, if not a hundred, new companies operating in the state with basic catastrophic plans, with riders, and finally have health insurance everyone can afford. Forget government solutions. We need to pave the road so insurers can compete and we aren't left with just ONE or TWO companies. After 35 years working with insurance firms, hospitals, doctors and other providers I KNOW we can make that happen.

3. IMPROVE EDUCATION! How? I want to see teacher assistants in every class so smaller work groups (proven to be best for student performance) help our kids reach their goals. Teachers, assistants and others need to be paid more so we retain them. And let's get felons out of the classroom. We don't need that distraction. End all lobbying our school boards, and disallow former board members, principals, and superintendents from securing lucrative private sector jobs by supporting contracts while in office.

4. GROW NORTH CAROLINA! Read all about policies and ideas on my other web pages. We can surely imitate what has been done in other states to successfully transplant those firms which will provide not only good paying jobs, but also training opportunities for those without skills.

5. DEADLY DRIVERS! Those who live in my district in the Highland Creek and Eastfield area know that at night our interstate loop I-485 has been turned into a drag strip. Recently, a car traveling at high speed along the western leg killed an entire family when it collided and also killed others. We need consistent Trooper enforcement at night so that these drag racers are identified and their licenses revoked appropriately. People are dying. This means increasing our budget for justice services at the state level.
