North Carolinians will have opportunity to reject Republican government by ambush next year when new legislative elections are held to partially remedy the damage of election districts found unconstitutional. The Republican hyper-majority is the result of these unconstitutional districts.
Yet in your Dec. 17 news article “McCrory starts signing bills to limit Democrats” Republican representative Nelson Dollar is quoted: “This is no coup. Every member was elected in a constitutional way.” He knows this is not true.
Take Republican statements, turn them upside down and the opposite often fits the known facts much better. Please remember the arrogance and disdain for facts and resident input – or even input by Democratic legislators – this Republican hyper-majority has shown.
In 2017, please vote to restore checks and balances to our legislature.
Never miss a local story.
