First off, let me explain a little about the misconception of who is qualified for political office. The media has the public so mindlessly conditioned that you have to be born into or groomed as a great politician. This is not true. We need more people that have nothing to gain from holding public office. We need an actual ethics commission that can take a bite out of government corruption and a corrupt elections system. This commission needs to have full arrest authority to take down people who think they're above the law. All elected officials need to have term limits. I have many regional concerns, including making corporate polluters pay for water quality measures instead of residents. My other problems include crime prevention, political accountability, developing hemp farming and the bio-plastic industry, ‘smarter’ energy sources, and local government and elections transparency. I also believe the state needs to go after big monopolies like Duke Energy with little to no oversight and the CFPUA with little regulation or supervision. Another big problem that I see as a Huge waste of citizens' time is SPAM CALLERS. The state of NC needs to end this kind of harassment. I want to address municipalities’ ability to adjust property taxes on the state level, allowing them to only increase a citizen's property tax by no more than 3% in any tax re-evaluation. Another big issue I see is the over-development of New Hanover County. Our state needs to hold municipalities more accountable for adhering to a common practice of using DOT records to guide their planning and development.
