Senator Basnight has had long enough in his seat. No career politicians!

Richardson won't increase taxes. Basnight will increase taxes.

Marc Basnight needs to go! He is only out for himself and special interests. He WILL raise taxes to support his pork barrel spending ie Mid-Currituck Bridge 28 million per year for at least 50 years because the project will NEVER pay for itself and it will be a Toll Bridge IF and thats a big IF it gets built. No to career politicians!

until Marc Basnight went to the Senate no state money was being spent East of Raleigh. Marc fought for us all on the East coast and we began to prosper and grow. Anyone in his district could call his office with a REAL need and have the support and help of his staff. I can name you so many. Party affiliation aside. By the way...I'm a registered Republican and beleive in term limits, but this man has done more for District 1 than any one in the state.
His opponants ads slurring Marc show no class! Politics as usual !!!
Lets keep integrity in the Senate.

Marc made it illegal for me to take my groceries inside without first spilling them all over the driveway. Give me back my plastic bags.

Why did he make it illegal for my neighborhood but not his?

Before you people start bitching about plastic bags, do a little research. Do you now how terrible plastic is for our environment??? Have you ever heard of Trash Islad??? If you dont care about people living now at least have a little consideration for the generations to come, why should they suffer from our carelessness. Oh yeah, to 'HAHA' plastic bags are illegal in Dare County too....once again, do a little research and get you facts straight.

No dummy, they are illegal in most of Dare County. They are not illegal on Roanoke Island where Basnight lives. Maybe you should do a little research. Basnight specifically excluded his neighborhood.

You dummy, banning grocery bags in 20 grocery stores isn't going to touch your "trash island". How about plastic bottles? Should we ban those too? Do you drive? Your car has plenty of plastic.

I want to know why he didn't ban plastic bags in Manteo. Actually I know why, I just want to hear him say it. It's because he lives there. Most of the houses where the bags are banned are on pilings, meaning we have to carry our groceries upstairs. I used to be able to carry them all in one trip. Now if I forget that stupid canvas bag, I have to make 2 or 3 trips. That may or may not include another trip to pick up the stuff that fell out of the bag that broke.

The recycled paper bags are horrible. If I buy anything frozen, that bag WILL tear apart.

So screw you Basnight. I voted for the other guy. I used to respect you until you pulled this.

Jesus crimony, people. Get some GD cloth tote bags and get on with your life. Sheesh! What's done is DONE. You can carry a shitload more in a handled cloth tote bag than in three plastic bags. If you love GD plastic bags so GD much, go buy them in bulk at Staples or Sam's Club or something. GD.

They don't have plastic bags at the Piggly Wiggly, either, and I do believe that is in...Manteo!
