Help for small businesses
I am a candidate for the N.C. House of Representatives in District 40. While I am a current resident of Wake Forest, I lived many years ago in Morrisville and served as the chief of police and as a volunteer with the Morrisville Fire Department.
I decided to file for this seat because we need to create jobs, help small businesses and fully fund our education system in North Carolina. Your current representatives have only hurt small businesses by providing a $3,500 tax credit while giving billions to large corporations. Small businesses are our largest employers in this state.
Your current legislators have promised to create jobs and help small businesses, yet they have done the opposite. Before you vote, look at the voting records of those who want to represent you in the General Assembly.
If elected, I will work diligently to find funding to address the ever-increasing traffic congestion in Morrisville. While local officials have added and maintained town streets, state-maintained roads and intersections have been neglected. I am certain your current legislators will have you believe they will address these problems; however, they have a mandate to cut spending and reduce the size and scope of government.
In order to address these issues, I will need your support and vote on Nov. 6.William Watt Jones Wake Forest
