Here in East Wake, we did our job. We voted against the severely flawed School Bond that will raise taxes by over 10% and cast Wake County into more than $3 billion in debt. Unfortunately, the rest of the county - particularly the urban areas - did not agree with us.
In the eastern precincts of Wake County, we opposed the bond overwhelmingly in 100% of our precincts with a 60/40 vote overall opposing the bond. The remainder of the county voted 60/40 in favor of it. We believe that if we had been large enough to educate voters across the county as well as we educated our East Wake voters, we would have handily defeated this debacle.
Thanks to all of our club members who worked tirelessly on this bond issue and we challenge each of you to stay engaged and informed as this fiscal burden begins to be pushed upon us. We must work to educate our neighbors about the dire predictions we made and how we're sure to see many of them begin to come true.
THANK YOU for your support of our Red, White, & BBQ event on Saturday. Despite the inclement weather earlier in the day, it was a complete success!
Dan Forest, George Holding, & Claude Pope were very gracious to spend time talking to our guests and really stirred up the crowd with their speeches that called us all to continue fighting for our freedoms and work together to push back the socialist agenda that would destroy this country.
Nearly 400 were in attendance. Even though rain chased a few off, we still managed to exceed our turnout expectations by quite a bit. We had participation from most of the other Republican Clubs in Wake County and we had attendees from all over Wake as well as adjoining counties.
