Well that didn’t take long! On day one of the 2016 registration for candidates Michael Fischer, who is supported by the Cabarrus Jobs Now organizers whom you should remember were proven to have sent out printed lies in the last Cabarrus County Commissioners race has kicked off his campaign by spreading lies. Specifically, in this article from the Independent Tribune, December 1, 2015 Michael Fischer made this statement…
“Tuesday Fischer said the $100,000 figure was not accurate. “We’ll raise whatever is necessary to run a competitive successful campaign.”
That statement was in response to the following:
In October, Pittman wrote a letter to the editor stating that Fischer’s supporters, Cabarrus Jobs Now, were trying to raise $100,000 to unseat him. He said the most he had ever raised for a campaign was $40,000 in 2014 and he didn’t spend all of that.
Also for the record here is the letter which Rep. Pittman was referring to. Please pay close attention to the last paragraph.
It clearly states “Michael needs to raise $100,000 before the end of the year… now notice the rest of that sentence about making the race competitive and getting his message out. By now we should all know what that message will be… MORE LIES, just like those put out by the CJN group in the last Cabarrus County Commissioners race.
Here are a couple of reminders in case you forgot about those lies….
Now in addition to this, you may be asking yourselves why would a successful young attorney with a prestigious law firm in Charlotte decide to take time away from a lucrative six figure career to go to Raleigh for a job that pays less than 1/3 that amount? We will let you answer that question for yourselves.
More importantly we should be asking who is funding him and why?
Look no further than the above letter signed by several of the organizers of the Progressive group Cabarrus Jobs Now. Current Cabarrus County Commissioner Diane Honeycutt, Cyndie Mynatt, daughter of current Commissioner Grace Mynatt, and Hotel Chain owner Doug Stafford.
One would ponder just why are these and a few other influential business people, some who are actually registered Democrats of Cabarrus county supporting Michael Fischer to oppose Representative Larry Pittman who has a very conservative record?
Representative Pittman has shown that he consistently stands strong in support of the voters of Cabarrus County against corruption and waste in Raleigh and has actively worked to help our Teachers, Highway Patrol, and Retired state workers. A representative who has fought tirelessly for our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms (2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution) a man who took the lead in fighting to remove Common Core from our Educational System and who continues to work to reduce the size and intrusion of government into our daily lives and our pocket books.
We must wonder if Mr. Fischer is so willing to saddle up with those who would out and out lie about these things, just what would he be willing to do if he were allowed to go to Raleigh and collude with the corrupt politicians who have taken over the Republican majority as reported in this article by the DailyHaymaker?
The choice is yours, whom do you want representing you in Raleigh? A proven Constitutionally Conservative and honorable man Larry Pittman, or another lawyer supported by an organization which has been proven to be corrupt and willing to outright lie to get their chosen person elected?
Isn’t it time we let our voices be heard and our values properly represented by those whom we elect and send to office on our behalf? Shouldn’t we demand honesty and integrity from our elected representatives? If the answer to these questions is YES then your choice for NC House District 82 Representative should be glaringly clear.
