It is time for a change in Congress. Heath is running for Congress because the residents of Western North Carolina are tired of controversies swirling around their Congressman. They are tired of the constant displays of corruption and selling of our government to the highest bidder. And they are tired of seeing our jobs sent overseas through unfair trade deals. It is time for Congress to get back to doing the people’s business.
Heath and his family moved back home to North Carolina in 2003 so he could raise his children in the same environment that he and his wife were raised in. Heath decided to run because the people of NC-11 are not getting a fair shake from their Congressman. Jobs in NC-11 have been sent overseas; far too many in this district are living paycheck to paycheck; and health insurance is unaffordable for a large number of residents; and we’re watching smog overtake our Great Smoky Mountain National Park. After much deliberation, and finally with the encouragement of his wife, Heath decided to run.
Over the next 5 months, we are going to be counting on your amazing energy, knowledge, and support as we work around-the-clock to reach each voter in the district.
Everyone in the district and with the campaign knows that this race will not be easy. Charles Taylor will not go down without a fight and they will use every dirty trick in the book. But, we are ready for that challenge and the stakes are too high for North Carolina and America. We are going to build on the strides made by Patsy Keever in 2004 and make sure that NC-11 has a representative that will work for them.
The latest independent poll conduct by PPP shows us 4% ahead! This is an 11 point swing since our poll in February. This has not been an easy battle so far but these numbers show that the work we are doing is paying off.
