Vote for the PROjobs candidate. Richard Rivette has a history of creating JOBs with new and existing companies. By concentrating on the redevelopment of the Charlotte region, 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 poverty once and for all. We need those intermediate jobs which take unskilled workers, train them, and move them along towards higher paying skilled jobs, and management. If we do this right, we can attract many companies to locate in North Carolina.

Richard Rivette has written more about this topic in the past to enlighten voters about what can be done at the state level to create a welcoming environment to new companies, startups and relocating national and regional firms. As a city and state we often negate some of the very best features of our communities through territorial disputes. He seeks to end that.

We must continue to focus on jobs, both allowing the creation of new careers, and the re-training of ALL those displaced by the last recession. Unemployment is now low but can rise if we do not continue to make progress. Regardless of the figures reported, unemployment in Charlotte is still too high among minorities. My opponent has done nothing to attract and retain new business. There are opportunities out there but very often our state, city and bureaucracy in general destroys ventures before they have a chance to grow.

"This election and this House seat cannot be about party, politics, or ethnicity. We must work together or we will fail as a community. For ten years now, I have not seen any action from our incumbent Representative on planning for growth, which is always the first step to making it a reality. I am PROgrowth for many reasons, the most obvious of which is gainful and rewarding employment for all citizens."

"I was chastised in my 2012 campaign for telling an audience that we do not have to raise taxes. That one cannot plan on lowering taxes. With proper planning, we can avoid burdening business further." Businesses plan for years in advance. Without stability, their number one concern, businesses will leave the state.

While many consumers may be unaware, whenever you raise taxes on corporations you simply raise the price of goods and services everyone buys. These companies cannot absorb more costs without charging more. So it is counterproductive to continually attack the very companies you hope to have expand and provide more jobs.

We still have enormous waste in this state that few are addressing. The point is that WITH planning we demonstrate to the business community at large that North Carolina will stabilize its expenses, and that will establish growth. It is NOT just the tax rate which destroys our efforts, but the lack of foresight and planning.

This year, Vote Rivette for NC House 107
