Re: “N.C. General Assembly

Jan MacKay advocates laws which are not vague, and are applied equally. You say I advocate poker for money, but let me tell you what is really going on. I tried to organize a statewide poker run for charity which would have raised tens of thousands of dollars for Victory Junction Gang - a camp for fatally ill children. If I had been part of the good ol boy network, there would have been no problem. Since I am not, I was told to get agreements from county DA's to look the other way. There is a need to change the laws so that they make sense and apply to everyone equally. If you do not support my candidacy, I hope you support those values and become more familiar with me in the future.

Re: “N.C. General Assembly

Jan MacKay supports modifying state law to allow POKER RUNS with 100% of the PROCEEDS GOING TO CHARITY, and please let me tell you why. I have promoted thousands of charitable events which have raised millions of dollars for a multitude of great charities. However, NC has an archaic state law which, in 2005, prevented me from organizing a statewide poker run which would have raised TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for the Victory Junction Gang Camp. That's a lot of money which could have helped some dying children to find some truly great enjoyment, if only for a short vacation. Since you are not familiar with how poker runs are often held by police and firefighters and well-connected people who are part of the GOOD OL BOY NETWORK, my research in 2005 is at http://bikersmag.com/html/nc_poker_runs_legal_issues.html
