Background: Paul Purdue comments on solutions to our situation.
THE GAS CRISIS Today, in light of the current gas shortages in western North Carolina and the continued price rises, Paul Purdue, NC State House candidate for District 115, called on the government for emergency relief.
ABOLISH THE GAS TAX AND REMOVE RESTRICTIONS
"If my opponent and this state government, which are both lacking in so many ways, focused on the needs of the people we wouldn't be in this mess. They knew that the restrictions would cause shortages or complete exhaustion of supplies when they were in session! We need an emergency session."
"People can't get to work, do their jobs. They can't go to the grocery store without worrying about getting home. Schools will run out, and won't be able to use buses. This is a CRISIS. Where the heck are our representatives now?"
HELPING OUR FAMILIES
Paul Purdue reviewed the piece and stated, "This is ridiculous. How does changing to fluorescent light bulbs or running buses on natural gas in Raleigh have ANYTHING to do with our plight? Goforth claims he "lowered taxes" and "capped the gas tax". The first claim is untrue since our budget has risen by a billion dollars every year he's been in office, and the second claim is ludicrous for the fact that we HAVE NO GAS TO TAX! Capping a gas tax is not even a Band-Aid. What was Bruce Goforth thinking?"
"I am sure all the families around here love getting junk mail talking about how hard Goforth worked for them. Apparently, that wasn't enough. Because we are all going to be bankrupt in short order from higher prices and the inability to get anywhere!"
In a recent statement one of the Governor's aides held that the gas shortage is "not our problem."
Paul Purdue joins with Senators Burr and Dole to immediately promote the following solutions to such future crises as the one we are experiencing now:
This will also be a great opportunity to create the environment for growing high paying jobs we desperately need in this state.
"Our campaign believes it is time for a change. We need to bring common sense to Raleigh. We are running out of options here."
