They are everywhere!

After CCA-PAC succeeds in forcing Fletcher Hartsell into retirement with the introduction of Parish Moffitt, the only creditable and significant replacement for Hartsell, the last minute want-to-be’s came crawling out of the woodwork!

In District 36, which spans Cabarrus and Union counties, the unexpected last minute “Retirement” announcement of Republican Sen. Fletcher Hartsell has drawn four Republicans who signed up to replace him.

Navy veteran Parish Moffitt, anesthesiologist Scott Aumuller, former Duke Energy state president for North Carolina, Paul Newton, and educator Amy Blake (Lewis), wife of Attorney John Lewis of Concord.

Let’s take a hard look at those running to replace now retiring NC State Senator Fletcher Hartsell.

First we have Parish Moffitt, a family man, strong Christian, accomplished former Military man who has worked himself up in the Airlines Industry. A strong Conservative who supports Limited Government, removing regulations that impede business development and growth and is tired of corrupt politicians. A proponent of traditional marriage, gun rights, anti-abortion as evidenced by his stand against Doctors recommendations to abort the birth of his first born. He is a proponent of Teachers and the return of local control of our education system while adamantly opposed to Common Core in North Carolina Schools. A true working class, citizen servant, candidate who believes Government needs to follow the Constitution as written. See more here

Parrish brings to mind a Trump/Cruz type of candidate, a political outsider who tells it like it is and is guaranteed to shake things up because he is not one of the “good ol’ boys” who will just play politics as usual and sell out his constituents.

Next we are asked to consider Dr. Scott Aumuller, a practicing Anesthesiology who has been in practice for 30 years. We were unable to find anything online that would help us to understand his reason for running or what his position is on anything. This would leave us asking the WHY question. Someone, virtually unknown, who wants our vote without giving us any insight into why he wants to hold such an important elected position.

Dr. Scott Aumuller is kind of like presidential candidate George Pataki. Who? That’s right. Why is he even running?

Paul Newton

Third on the list is former Duke Energy state president for North Carolina, Paul Newton. Seriously, a quick search of public records shows Mr. Newton ** (see correction below) has not voted in any North Carolina Elections since 11/3/1987 and is a faithful donor to the Duke Energy Corporation PAC. This might lead us to believe that Mr. Newton is certainly a proponent of Big Business with strong ties to Big Government. We wonder just what his motivations for running may be? There doesn’t appear to be any campaign website with any information as to what his platform or beliefs might be. Again someone asking for our votes without our knowing anything about his motivations or positions on the important issues.

Update 3/3/2016
** Mr. Newton recently contacted CCA-PAC and brought to our attention that the information on his voting record was not accurate and that we must have looked at the record of a different Paul R. Newton. In the spirit of always being truthful and accurate we rechecked our information source and did in fact locate a valid voting history of this Paul R. Newton. His record does show he has consistently voted in Cabarrus County since 1992. We appreciate Mr. Newton reaching out to us and helping us to set the record straight. That we have done. In addition he has asked for a public apology and an retraction. We have considered his request and will be happy to do that when he publically condemns the CJN ads against Rep. Larry Pittman and rejects their support of his candidacy. It’s up to Mr. Newton now!

Paul Newton can be looked at like a Lindsey Graham who is running for reasons that have NOTHING to do with his constituents.

Amy Blake-Lewis

We find ourselves left with educator Amy Blake, wife of Attorney John Lewis of Concord. Ms. Blake (Mrs. Lewis) has close ties to the Hartsell political machine that Cabarrus County has been suffering under for about 25 years. So why would we think for even a skinny minute that she would be anything more than an extension of that machine. She is obviously a member of the Republican Establishment Elite that so many of us are tired of as shown in her own words where she calls herself an ” Educator, moderate politico, Republican Leadership Initiative Fellow.” She is a proponent of Common Core believing that it should be the method of instruction for North Carolina Educators and she is a proponent of Pro Choice group.

Amy Blake-Lewis makes us think of a Jeb Bush type of candidate, continuing the political dynasty of a corrupt GOP Establishment that has only a dismal record of selling out on principles.

For Constitution Supporting Conservatives, at this time there appears to only be one choice as a viable replacement for a Senator who has been forced into retirement because of his actions, the threat of Criminal Prosecution, the opposition of Cabarrus Conservative Alliance – PAC and the voters from right here in Cabarrus County who are tired of the corruption in Raleigh by some of our elected officials.

It’s time to keep the Lawyers and professional big government politicians out of power and empower the people once again by electing Constitution supporting Conservatives into office and then keeping vigilant watch over them, their votes and letting them know what We The People want them to do on our behalf.

We don’t need any more representatives like Fletcher Hartsell who looked 8 Cabarrus County voters in the eye and said ” I have been up here over 20 years, I vote the way I want to and I don’t care what the people back home think!” Fletcher Hartsell, in the hall of the House Office building.

Cabarrus County needs and deserves better, we need a Senator who will listen to the people, who will work for the good of all Cabarrus County Voters and who will use the Constitution and Conservative values and principles as his guide in making the right decisions about governing “For the People”! Cabarrus County needs Parish Moffitt to serve them as their next Senator in the North Carolina General Assembly.

parish@parish4ncsenate.comPARISH MOFFITT ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR NORTH CAROLINA SENATE DISTRICT-36 SEATCONCORD, NC, December 4, 2015 – With family, friends and supporters at his side, Parish Moffitt formally announced today his candidacy for North Carolina Senate District 36 seat.
In his announcement, Moffitt described his campaign for office and his vision to see a return to government “of, by, and for the People.””I am one of you; one of ‘We the People’,” said Moffitt. “I believe that my life’s experiences, professional attributes, my abilities, skills, political philosophy, and rational understanding of the issues uniquely qualify me to be an authentic representative of the great people of Cabarrus and Union county and position me as the best candidate for the North Carolina Senate in 2016.”Thomas Jefferson said, “Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom”. Parish’s long held values of honesty and integrity were instilled into him at an early age and then reinforced while he served in the US NAVY. “There are some that believe a little slip of omission from time to time is acceptable; however, as was engrained into my very fiber these little omissions eventually result in casualties”, said Moffitt.

“I believe that North Carolina, America, and the Republican Party need to recommit to the enduring principles on which America was founded: limited government, free markets, personal liberty, and most importantly personal responsibility,” Moffitt proclaimed. “We need to stop acting like there is shame in holding fast to conservative values and principles! We need new, fresh, honest, and principled leaders who have the courage and conviction to recommit to those principles. We need a Senator whose motivation for seeking elected office is not driven by what’s best for him; but, rather, by the desire to serve the People as a public servant.”

Parish Moffitt is a Flight Deck Captain with PSA Airlines (a subsidiary of American Airlines), a North Carolina Paramedic and Rescue Technician, Serves as the chairman to the Board for a non-profit, is a United States NAVY veteran, and is currently working on a Master’s degree in Public Administration at the University of North Carolina School of Government. Parish and his wife Jacqueline live in Concord. One daughter, Sarah, lives at home with Parish and Jacqueline, and is majoring in Early Education. Their other daughter, Steffany, is majoring in Chemistry, and plans to teach high school after graduation. Parish and his family are active members of First Presbyterian Church in Concord, North Carolina.
