4.26.06 - Ken Gjertsen (R) CMS School Board District 6 - Endorses Rep. Rhodes
North Mecklenburg, NC. - Today, Ken Gjertsen, School Board District 6, gave John Rhodes his endorsement, issuing the following statement:
"Dear Republican Primary Voter:
"I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to return John Rhodes to the State House. We all have dreams of what can be accomplished in this state and with our school system, but no one has gone after the root cause of our problems - corruption - like John Rhodes.
"To call Rep. Rhodes a fighter is an underestimation. He takes on special interests and leadership regardless of their affiliation to move the state forward. We are witnessing the beginning of the end of corrupt power wielding in North Carolina thanks to John Rhodes.
"For all our futures I ask for you to go vote May 2nd to Re-elect John Rhodes. He is making progress and this is now time to turn back. Reform can only progress once we eliminate the powerful base of the House Speaker. Rhodes is doing just that. Remember to vote for John Rhodes.
"Ken Gjertsen - CMS School Board District 6"
Rhodes thanked Mr. Gjertsen in the following statement:
"Thank you to Mr. Gjertsen for understanding the cause of our problems and articulating it in such a manner that everyone else will understand. We will not be able to address issues like problems in our schools, unfinished roads or illegal immigration, until we end the sphere of corrupt influence that has plagued this state."
U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick (R) among other Republican officials offered her official endorsement this month.
Republican primary voters may vote on May 2nd, 2006 at their local precinct for Representative John W. Rhodes.
