I have not figured out why Tommy Tucker attacked Fern Schubert with negative-and FALSE statements. Fern is a gentlewoman. She has not responded to Tucker's lies. As the article explains Tucker first sent out a mailer calling Fern ineffective. It said she introduced 100 bills and none passed. THAT WAS A LIE. Fern was very effective. She knew how to follow the dollars in Raleigh and helped expose Jim Black. Then in her gubernatorial campaign she pointed out that there was something wrong with Future Felon Mike Easley's balance sheet. Her information was introduced by the state in Easley's hearing before the state elections board. Fern did introduce bills which passed. See the article above! Now Tucker is at it again. A second mailer said Fern worked to raise taxes. THAT WAS A LIE. Fern has never voted to raise taxes. See the article above.

Tucker is a desperate man. He is a dirty player who has no substance other than to attack the person who is leading him. He offers no solutions to our problems and is known by his friends and aquaintances as "dull, slow witted and boring"

If Fern did so well at "uncovering " injustice within Raleigh, then I would suggest she run for District Attorney and take Snyders job. He sure isn't motivated to prosecute any corrupt public figures.

Just vote for Fern. I have been out of town, just back and catching up.

Vote for Fern.

She did a LOT that no one knows about. Fern also does a LOT personally to help people in need and does not feel she needs to brag about it. Mr. Tucker obviously is not a nice person, or he would not have resorted to such dirty politics. Is that the kind of person you want representing you in Raleigh?

Fern is a good, upright, Christian woman who truly wants to clean up Raleigh and the corruption that is going on, which just costs you and me tax dollars and lines the dirty politicians' pockets!

I voted! Just now. I was voter #53 in Marshvegas. Hope the rest were early voters, or I am disappointed in my fellow citizens.

Back to work now!

Please Vote!

That D'Annunzio guy is a certified nut. His life is like a soap opera. He was arrested several times for beating up his first wife while running around with the woman he's now married to. Wife number 2 was an illegal alien from Mexico at the time. She's a US citizen now. D'Annunzio's hobby back then was skydiving. He built a vertical wind tunnel out of an old aircraft engine to practice "flying". He got rich selling them to amusement parks and, believe it or not, the US government. He was a big time drinker and gambler. He decided to get into local politics in Raeford NC but first he found Jesus and started a radio show. The show is part religious and mostly self promotion. He says he is going to Washington to take out laws that are unconstitutional and eliminate whole departments in the government. D'Annunzio is prone to violent outbursts. At a debate in Fayetteville in March He didn't like the questions he was being asked by the moderator and stormed off of the stage. IN Albemarle, NC he confronted state represenative Furr, called him a "cheap bastard" and tried to fight him until aides dragged him off.....and this man wants to be our congressman?

I still don't know who the democrat candidates are who are running for county commission. I also heard there was a libertarian running. Is there a website where I can find out who they are?
