Cabarrus Magazine Profile

 

My answers for the Cabarrus Magazine’s October Issue Candidates Profile…

 

Q: What is the single biggest issue facing Cabarrus County? What is your plan to address that issue?

A: The opioid crisis. I call for the county to declare a public health emergency and immediately decriminalize cannabis (marijuana) in the county. In states with access to safe, legal cannabis, opioid-related deaths have dropped at least 25 percent. Cabarrus County should be on the cutting edge of compassion and defend its citizens’ God-given right to self-medicate safely.

Public School Safety

My take on public school safety and those offensive mobile classrooms…

 
We have an abundance of retired military and law enforcement officers living in our county. I would work with the Sheriff and municipal law enforcement to develop a way to utilize this valuable asset of our community.

 
Banks and businesses use guards who are heavily armed to protect their money. Shouldn’t we take the same precautions to protect our most precious resource, our children?

 
We also need to find the money to eliminate those offensive mobile classrooms. Our children deserve better.

 
I call on Dr. Lowder and the education establishment to move out of their nice, safe and cozy offices and work out of a construction trailer until this issue is settled.
Where are our priorities?

Freedom and Fair Play

I want our county to be a truly free and fair market with the least amount of political influence as possible.

 
We can provide a space where markets can thrive with the lowest taxation and regulatory burden in our region without sacrificing our dedication to clean air and water.

 
We are capable of raising our environmental standards while increasing the economic freedom of all citizens, not just the politically favored and connected corporate interests.
My only special interest is to serve my fellow citizens.

 

 

I can only serve them by serving the principles of freedom and fair play.

A Drug Dealer’s Best Friend

Prohibitionists are a drug dealer’s best friend. They couldn’t make a dime without the help from governments and most especially Republicans.

The GOP loves “sin”. Their legislators create victimless crimes which only creates more “criminals”, thus more “sin”.

I am witnessing the slow, painful death of the GOP and I thank my God for it… #evolveorperish

473 Days of Silence and Disrepect

 

 

Paging Mr. Mark Plemmons….
It has been 473 days since I brought my Korean War Veteran father to your office to introduce him and tell our family story.

473 days of deafening silence…

Ironically, that was just before the county commission meeting where I spoke and introduced my father and told my family’s story. Not a peep. Not a “Thank you for serving our country, Mr. Hill” or anything…

Just 473 days of deafening silence and disrespect from Mark and his paper. 473 days since the GOP county commission ignored my veteran father.

What would you do in my shoes, Mark Plemmons?
