And A Train runs through it

As a Candidate for North Carolina House of Representatives District 40, I am never surprised at various issues and how they correlate to my opponent, Republican Marilyn Avila of Wake County. In Wake County, the need for mass transit has been in the works for quite some time. I continue to read the benefits, both pro and con, of high speed rail, in particular, the Raleigh to Richmond Corridor. My opponent seems to think it will not be of any benefit to anyone and ridership would be low at best. This argument could have some merit if this were the only reason she were opposing it so strongly. She stands to benefit in opposing it, for the sole reason of another political contribution. It seems the rail line plans drawn by NCDOT would lead the train running straight through the property of Thales Academy in Wake Forest. Thales Academy is another private school owned by one of her major campaign contributors, Bob Luddy.

Jones Announces run for N.C. House of Representatives- District 40 (Marilyn Avila's Seat)

William "Watt" Jones of Wake Forest has officially filed as a Candidate for the North Carolina House of Representatives in House District 40. This campaign will not be about me. It is about the future of the Citizens of Wake County and North Carolina. We need to continue to have the best education system in the country, not 49th. We need to assist in providing Jobs for people who are unemployed and cant find work ...due to the economy. We need a more fair tax system in North Carolina that does not benefit large corporations and forget's the poor and middle class. We need to provide incentives where small businesses can grow in North Carolina to help provide those jobs. More important, our elected officials need to listen to the people who elect them to office, not special interests. My website will hopefully be up soon to accept volunteers and campaign donations. We all need to work together to solve our states problems!
