Gina Pucek: A better conservative choice

A better conservative choice

Holly Springs Mayor Dick Sears apparently doesn’t understand why he didn’t receive the endorsement of the Wake County Republican Party. Allow me to help explain, Mayor.

You weren’t nominated because under your watch Holly Springs has the most debt of any town in Wake County. “If it’s good for the kids, it’s good for Holly Springs,” as you like to say. Passing off IOUs to our kids is not a Republican principle, and it’s not good for our kids or Holly Springs.

You weren’t nominated because Holly Springs citizens are tired of the hostile and harassing treatment by police to adult citizens and our children. If you want what’s good for the kids, why haven't you worked with the Holly Springs Police Department to uplift our children?

You weren’t nominated because this is a pivotal time for Holly Springs, and it’s crystal clear that you don’t have a clear vision for our future. Your opponent, Vinnie DeBenedetto, has a clear vision of our future. He gives facts and he listens.

Finally, you probably weren’t nominated because once you heard of your opponent getting the party’s support, you spoke out against the very party you expected to support you. With that attitude, why should they nominate you?

Holly Springs is ready for new leadership. This conservative is glad the GOP endorsed DeBenedetto, and I look forward to voting for him in November.
