What has Roger West accomplished in the state legislature

Is it true that this end of the state does not want to elect anyone who can get funding for whatever project that would help this end of the state. Roger really has not accomplished much in all the time he has served as represenative. If you keep up with what the legislature does when in session, you will see that eastern north carolina gets all the gravy. Anything not obtained for the west is gladly and cheerfully sent to eastern north carolina counties.

I think Roger is doing a good job and TCC has prospered during His time in Raleigh. Most of the population is East of Asheville so who do you think has the power?

There are 12 congressional districts in North Carolina. I am not sure how many state house districts there are. But all districts represenative an approximately equal number of people. Funds and projects are still heavily weighted to districts south and east of Raleigh. When a representative and voters are against any government spending and funding of projects guess who is waiting for this funding to fall in their laps. If eliminating government programs is your long and strong held belief fine, but your area then lags behind.

Mike Edwards the Chairman of the Graham County Board of Commissioners has entered into the race against West. He is running as a Republican so to replace West we'll need to get out in full force in the primaries since there has yet to be a democrat enter the primaries will decide the whole thing.
