There was basically already a referendum on zoning in Chatham County in the last election. The Democratic commissioners who were for zoning won the election. It is a minority who are against zoning.
She did not even say the word Republican or GOP. She said elected officials and that includes all parties. There were both Republicans and Democrats who voted for HB2. However, I find it well deserved that they see it as Republicans who were at fault for HB2.
You are so wrong. The Democratic Party believes in inclusiveness. There may be many factions but we have the common thread in believing that we are all in this together. When one succeeds, we reach back and give a helping hand to the person behind us. This is quite different from the Republican "every man for himself" or "I've got mine and the hell with you" philosphy. Our nation for the past 30 years has allowed the philosophy that if we just give businesses everything they want that the benefits will trickle down to the masses. Unfortunately there was too much taking by the rich and not enough giving to the workers so that our economy is out of balance. Now workers don't have enough money to buy all those products that businesses are making more cheaply overseas. People are finally waking up (although it took a near depression to do it) and realizing how unfair the division of the wealth from their labors is. There are a lot more workers than CEOs so beware when the rest of them realize what a ride they have been taken on.
In 2010 the Dream Act Passed the House and would have passed in the Senate if the Republicans had not fillibustered the bill which would have required 60 votes to overturn the fillibuster and bring the Act to a vote in the Senate. Unfortunatley they had only 55 votes. Thus a minority determined the outcome.
I lot of people have told me that Lynn Mann is the best choice for the soil position.
