The Carolina Stompers Are Back!!!

I especially love their tribute to my favorite Senator, Jesse Helms.

Former State Senator Has Questions Regarding Ethics Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 11, 2008

A letter regarding the North Carolina General Assembly’s ability to police itself in ethics investigations has been posted on WNC Citizens Blog.

The letter writer brings up some good points, especially about past unethical behavior, and I provided the links in the letter to provide evidence of the letter writer’s varacity.

The key system has been used by the Democratic Party for over thirty years, and it is still in place.

Congressional Candidate Dr. Carl Mumpower: Taking A Stand On Principle

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 11, 2008

This is a video of Dr. Carl Mumpower, who is challenging Congressman Heath Shuler for the US House Seat representing the North Carolina 11th Congressional District, speaking and taking questions at the monthly meeting of Citizens For Change in Buncombe County.

He goes over some of his principles, and discusses recent activity and controversy in his campaign, and takes a few questions from attendees.

What makes this video different is that it is the work of longtime conservative activist, Kathy Rhodarmer. She will be another set of of eyes and ears on the ground for the people of North Carolina, and Buncombe County. Another Citizen Journalist is being born!

I look forward to seeing more of her work in the future, and collaborating with her, and others in Buncombe County on event coverage.
