I am deeply disappointed in The N&O Editorial Board’s endorsement of Marilyn Avila for N.C. House District 40. This generous bump for Avila’s re-election is apparently based on the fact that the N.C. House is “likely to remain under GOP control.” It also seems to me you are picking some Republicans just to appease the readership.
As a constituent of District 40, the only time we hear anything from Avila is at election time. I asked, on numerous occasions this past year, via mail and Facebook postings to help me with rationale for House Bill 2 and got no response. Nothing.
Her voting record is always along party lines, and I for one don’t wish to blindly hand over my vote for a sheep that’s going to follow Tim Moore and Phil Berger regardless.
I say anyone that would vote “aye” on such a terrible bill should be removed.
