4.24.06 - Representative Russell Capps (R) - Endorses Rep. Rhodes
North Mecklenburg, NC. - Today, prominent State Representative Russell Capps (R) - Wake County, gave John Rhodes his endorsement, issuing the following statement:
"Dear Republican Primary Voter:
"It is my distinct honor to endorse Representative Rhodes to continue serving the taxpayers and families of the 98th district. His profound effect battling corruption in our state is resulting in the first real reform movement we have seen in many years. Rep. John Rhodes effectively fights to clear the path like a true trailblazer.
"With Rhodes leading the battle to create an atmosphere of integrity and honesty, I believe we can seriously address the most pressing issues facing our state. As Rep. Rhodes states, we need to secure a Taxpayers Bill of Rights, and press for more local control of schools by letting voters decide the Deconsolidation Issue. This affects many districts.
"Equally important is that voters know, no amount of negotiating or dealmaking is going to solve our state's problems. We have to envision and execute reform. By changing the basic process as Rep. Rhodes has endeavored and succeeded in doing, we can improve our schools and have the funds remain in the budget to accellerate road projects, among other valuable items.
"Too many politicians focus on working within a corrupt system to gain some kind of advantage for their district, or worse they believe by attempting to work within existing rules they can get the funds for roads and schools, when in fact, they cannot. They only end up negotiating away MORE pork projects for others in hopes of securing what they want.
"I urge all primary voters to re-elect Representative Rhodes so he can keep working for all of us."
Representative Russell Capps (R) - Wake
Rhodes thanked Representative Capps in the following statement:
"I would like to thank Representative Capps for recognizing the depth of corruption in our state and how it profoundly affects everything we try to accomplish. By continuing to press as I have, we can finally deliver those essential services and improvements needed by all our citizens."
