Jackson is ineffective. Bonds is effective. The voters missed the boat by not showing up for a leader, a winner. Now we have two more years of Jackson unless Cutlip can force a debate which Jackson would not do with Bonds because she could eat him alive with a microphone and questions. No question here who is more intelligent, a better advocate and the right choice for the people - Bonds. Jackson is a puppet of others and special interests.

Jeanne Bonds is the best candidate for this election in District 39! Not only is she extremely smart, known for serving the community and focused on Education and Small Businesses, she is a Quiet Giant! Jeanne invited her opponent to a debate on 4/28/10 to discuss issues and guess what happened? NOTHING! He don't care to debate her on issues so he didn't bother to show up. Since when is an election not about the issues? If you want to dig into why her opponent didn't show up for the debate, I'm sure your findings will result in FEAR OF EXPOSURE for him not knowing what issues are important to the people. He has never won an election. He was appointed because even his counterparts know he is not capable of winning on his own.
Join me in celebrating this Strong Women ready to serve on our behalf and be our voice in the House of Representatives.

A strong woman for office! A good mayor who put Knightdale on the map and can do it for our whole side of the county!

Jeanne Bonds is hands down the MOST experienced, qualified person for our District.

Her opponent will not debate her and he says he "is the most effective freshman legislator" but he was appointed over Don Mial on a fluke and he is most effective among 6 people all of who are in the bottom 30% of the House for being effective.

Here is the Jackson answer in east wake newspaper

Q: Members of the General Assembly, and now the executive branch, have come under scrutiny in recen tyears for ethical lapses and illegal activity. What proposals would you make to strengthen ethical standards for the legislature? What role, if any, would stronger sunshine laws play in that effort?

A: I am new to the legislature and was not around when the Speaker Black/Meredith Norris scandals occurred. Things have changed and the General Assembly continues to take action to address these problems. I have worked to be part of these reforms. I have never accepted a meal or any type of gift from a lobbyist. I want my constituents to know that I pay my own way and that I am working to restore your trust to those you elect to represent you.

It was Michael Decker/jim Black/Thomas Wright scandal. First of all. And WHY MR JACKSON did you take $4000 from Jim Black if you do not know anything about him??
