North Wilkesboro, NC (January 15, 2010) – Today, Jeffrey Elmore, teacher and Commissioner in the Town of North Wilkesboro formally announces his bid for the North Carolina Senate in District 45. Commissioner Elmore made the following statement:

“Alexander, Ashe, Watauga and Wilkes counties are suffering from the recent downturn in the economy with some of the highest unemployment numbers in the state. Our citizens need jobs and a sense of hope for our future. Instead, we see key Democrat leaders in Raleigh involved in corruption and many taking on the philosophy of taxing our way out of the problem. The people of our district need a clear vision for our future direction and I am just the person for the job. I will work day and night to make sure that the common sense, conservative values seen in our mountain and foothill communities are represented and heard in Raleigh.”

Foxx announces plans to run for re-election

Clemmons, NC—Congresswoman Virginia Foxx today announced that she will run for reelection for North Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District. Foxx has represented the Fifth District in Congress since 2005.
“Representing the people of North Carolina’s Fifth District in Congress is a great honor, Foxx said. “During this era of record deficits I promise to continue to hold Washington accountable and rein in its reckless spending and wasting of taxpayers’ hard-earned money.
Foxx is a strong proponent of keeping taxes low and ensuring that the government lives within its means. Last year Foxx opposed the bank bailouts, the auto bailouts and other massive spending programs like the trillion dollar stimulus package.
Washington needs a strong dose of North Carolina common sense,” Foxx said. “North Carolinians are looking for someone who will stand up to the big-spending ways of Washington and who will offer solutions that solve problems without growing government and creating debt. As a small-government conservative, I have a proven track record of fighting to preserve freedom and keep big government at bay.”
During her third term Foxx successfully shepherded a bill through Congress to improve on-base housing for soldiers in the Army. Her bill to stop the 2008 bank bailout also passed the House last January.
